DIY Seashell Shadowbox for $10

Living in the Puget Sound area has translated to lots and LOTS of beach treasures. While at the beach one day, we found a perfect sand dollar. I've had it in a jar for a few years, but that's pretty boring, and the top chipped in our last move. I needed a better solution. Then while at Ikea the other weekend, I happened upon these square white Ribba picture frames for just $10! Perfect! The rest of the project is pretty self-explanatory. I have a few more treasures I'm planning on framing, and would like to continue to do so. Wouldn't it be lovely to have a whole series of these one day? Much better than having them in a box in the back of a closet. Lame!

I ended up using hot glue because I was feeling impatient, and a Sharpie pen because it worked better on the slightly textured scrapbook paper. It's been a few days, and the sand dollar hasn't fallen off yet!
