HOW TO CREATE A PET REMEMBRANCE BOX
Collect items to include in the memorial box. You can include such items as photos, collar, small favorite toy, paw print, poem, etc.

On cardstock or other paper, put the pet's name and dates of birth and death, if desired. This can be handwriting, printed on computer, stenciled or made with letter stickers or scrabble tiles. .

Leave the shadow box plain or create a personalized background by attaching decorative paper with glue.

Design the layout for the shadow box by arranging the memorabilia and photo(s) in an eye pleasing arrangement.

Glue items in place. You can use a glue stick for light-weight items such as paper items but for heavier items such as a clay paw print, collar or small toys we recommend you use a hot glue gun to secure them in place.
