2. Shadowbox of memorabilia

Some things just can’t be replaced. But shadowbox framing makes for a great way to preserve those special tokens while making a great gift! Whether dried flowers, a giftshop souvenir, or leaves or rocks from a special place, 3-D objects can transform nicely into art, making for an especially meaningful gift.
