wedding shadowbox


after i made the wedding card book this past weekend, i decided to make the wedding shadowbox i had been planning on making as well! i like how it came out. it's simple, but really encompasses the feel of our wedding. our wedding was really simple too, so it fits!

sunflower - this is the one i wore on my wedding dress.
mason jar - this is our wedding invitation. (made by Scrappin Good Times)
knot - this is the wedding knot we tied during the ceremony. 
the B "carton" - (in the bottom right) is what our wedding invitation sat in. i put a picture of us from our wedding day inside it. i love how the sunflower peeks through the hole. over the picture i put a little mason jar that has our names inside - it's from a card we included with our invitations that said where we were registered. 
hugs & kisses from the Mr. & Mrs. - a sticker that was used on our favors display. we had cloth bags with a mason jar & "thank you very much" on the front that was packed with Hershey's hugs & kisses!

what are you favorite wedding keepsakes?


  1. <3 I love it!!! It's absolutely gorgeous! :-)

    1. thanks Susannah! :) i was hoping it wouldn't just look like a bunch of stuff thrown into a box!

  2. That is so cute!! I love how everything in it has a specific meaning from your special day. Plus, I adore sunflowers :)

  3. so cool, Robyn! I wish I would have done something like this from our wedding. I'll have to see if I can still scrounge up some of our stuff :) I forgot to make something for the linkup today so I guess I'll have to catch up tomorrow.

  4. this is so cute and such a good idea!!! I'll definitely be creating something like this in the future (after I actually get married, of course) haha ;)

  5. thanks so much!!! :) you should definitely find what you can & make one! it was so much fun & i love just remembering our wedding! :)
    can't wait to see what art you come up with! :)

  6. thank you so much Michelle!! :)
    haha! you definitely should make a shadow box!!! just collect and save everything you do during your engagement/wedding prep!!! then you'll have a bunch of little fun things to choose from! :)

  7. p.s. your blog isn't connected to your disqus profile! i'd love to check out your blog!!

  8. yes I'll definitely be doing that!!
    and I updated my disqus profile, thanks for noticing that my link was missing :) I don't know much about disqus and honestly didn't even know I had a "profile" there....thank you!

  9. it took me the longest time to figure that out, too! but i love checking out new blogs so i wanted to be sure to find yours! :)

  10. thank you so much friend! :)
    yes, it IS a wedding invitation in the shape of a mason jar! i actually got them made from a shop on Etsy! they were my favorite thing about our wedding (except actually getting married, you know!)
    thanks for your kind, kind words!!

  11. thanks so much!!! it was so much fun to put together & i love that every item has special meaning! :)
    ahh i love sunflowers too! they are just so pretty! and they really are just like mini-suns that brighten up the room!

  12. oh girl.
    I lOVE THIS!
    is that a wedding invitation in the shape of a mason jar? are you kidding me?! That is wonderful! So special. I love that you put it all in a shadow box. Frames just really make every piece of art so legit. You did fab.
