One of the greatest milestones for a parent is welcoming their newborn baby. Remember that moment of seeing your child for the first time? The words ecstatic, enraptured, and euphoric all suddenly seemed lame words to describe the feeling. All parents, I’m sure, are wishing they could go back over and over again to that surreal moment of watching the precious little life that was in their arms.
Good thing we now have video cameras to capture that event and help us relive those memories. Though I think that the best way to do that is to let your own memory of it to take you back – not the memory card of your video cam.
Creating a “baby memories shadowbox” was one of the best ideas ever thought of: It is a window, which when you look at it, gets you emotional with all the happiness and incredible feeling that you had. It takes you back to that place and time from your own perspective.

How to create a baby memories shadowbox?
1. Gather your selected baby items that will fit your box.
Be sure to measure all items first before you buy the shadowbox from a cheap craft store.
. You don’t want your items to look crowded or crammed in. By taking a few minutes to measure beforehand, you can ensure that your shadowbox display looks neat and tidy. Plus, it’ll save you the headache of having to return the shadowbox if it’s too small.
2. Choose a matching background
Choose a fabric with a nice print that would match your items.
When you’re looking for a fabric to display with, it’s important to consider both the design and the colour of the fabric. You want to choose a fabric with a design that will compliment your items and a colour that will work well with the other colours in your project.
3. Arrange and glue
See the final outcome of your project by placing all items and moving them around until you are satisfied with how it looks before permanently gluing them. This way, you can make any changes you want without having to start over from scratch.
Once you’re happy with the layout, you can start permanently gluing things down.
