Secure the Box Contents

Glue decorative rope liner into the corners to cover the seams, then accessorize the box by gluing in the objects you've chosen. Be certain to use a good adhesive glue that's rated for the materials you are gluing.

The Assembled Shadow Box

Once the glue has dried and the items are secured within the box, install the glass top. You now have a work of decorative art that you've customized with your own signature style.
