DIY: Sonogram Keepsake Shadow Box


Shortly after giving my new school book font stamps a go last week on my washi tape organizer I became obsessed with wanting to stamp everything in my sight.
Including my husband's forehead while he lay asleep.
Lucky for him I didn't think it was worth the effort to try to get this growing belly out of bed to get my stamps so instead this weekend I resorted to my back-up plan;
 a little sonogram shadow box keepsake.
 
 
Materials:
Shadow Box Frame
Small Wood Scrap
Paint & Paintbrushes
Scrapbook Paper
Stamps & Ink Pad
Scissors
Hot Glue Gun
Double Sided Tape
Photograph
 
To get started, I  just simply painted my shadow box frame & the little wood scrap .
After the paint dried I decided I wanted my box to have a little more character so I added some antiquing glaze.
 
Next, I cut my paper to size & layered & secured it along with Baby B's sonogram picture to the inside of the shadow box frame using double sided tape.
Then I got to my favorite part........stamping!
 
I added a cute little baby quote & then attached the wood tag to the front of my shadowbox.
 
The final product........
 
 
A close-up for you bifocal -wearing -peeps.......
 
 
It beats just hanging your ultrasound pics on the mirror,
which is what we had been doing up until this point.
Double bonus is these would make for easy & simple gifts for any mommy-to-be don't ya think?

This is so gorgeous and such a great idea! I just took my sonograms down off the fridge on the weekend (my little guy was born almost 4 months ago!) and I was wondering what I should do with them. Thanks for the inspiration!

This is the cutest,, sweetest keepsake idea I have ever seen. My 3 yr. old granddaughter has the sonogram picture of her baby brother-to-be taped on her closet door. She would love this for her picture.
