I LOVE this! It is too cute!!

I have custom shadow box frames for all of my special pins. Here is a pic of my "I was there" pin in a custom shadow box, I have it sitting on my desk, it looks really nice. Much better than sitting in a drawer!

These are so smart! How did you get them? I'd really like something like this.

You can get shadow boxes at places like Michaels.

Meggiebeth I actually make these and sell them :-) while shadow boxes are readily available, the custom matting really sets these frames apart from a plain shadow box. Makes them look really good. I am so excited about them, it lets me combine my love for Disney with my love for being crafty!

Thankyou! Is there anywhere that sells these shadow boxes with custom matting online? I just love yours- so much nicer than pins just being stored in a cupboard. They are amazing and do the pins so much justice!

I use a standard cork bulletin board. I have one per theme. Vinylmation, cast lanyar etc. then I hang them on my wall

I asked my wife to do these for me.




They are cork board frames with the white cotton stuff on top of the cork board cause it was a little this.

Then it has the Mickey print fabric on top of that. The fabric was the old shower curtain from the Poly before the refurb.

I haven't added much to it yet.

My daughter uses her pin bag. She didn't want anything special... Yet anyway.

For MY special collection I put them in a plain shadow box from Michael's.
