He collects patches from every national park he's been to. Currently they all just sit in a box and I thought putting them in shadow boxes would be a fun way to show them off and a great, personalized Valentine's Day gift!
Stickers, Mat Paper, Glue
Maps (printed copies)
|Cut up maps|
|Boards with maps and mat paper glued down|
|Stickers added for a little pop|
As you can see from the last picture, the patches weren't added yet (except for one I found lying around). These pictures were taken before I gave the shadow boxes to him.
This whole project only took an hour and barely cost much at all!
I always think that a homemade present goes a long way (don't tell him that, I like my jewelry and shoes!), and these were a great way to show off his collection while still keeping it classy and work into our apartment decor.
What fun homemade presents have you created??
