Shadowboxers are used for treasured memories more so than anything else. I have put many things in a shadow box from real elephant ears to grandma's medicine cabinet. In picking a shadowbox, you want to have the stuff that you are going to frame so that you can see where it's going to set it and if you have you have clearance for your glass and your back as well. This one is very questionable as I use this piece of matte board to put it here it just barley covers, I have enough room for my glass, I have enough room to where this would set without hitting the glass. Where as I chose one of these to this it would never work, it will work on this one barley as I put this piece of matte board in there it allows me to put it in there with ease so I know that my glass is going to cover. Or if I used one of these with that there is just no way that I can get it all in there with a piece of glass over the top of it to make it all work. Size is very important in a shadowbox. You want to give yourself enough room but you don't want to give yourself so much room that it over powers it. If I was to use that one, it would look pretty dwarf in there. So it's really important to take a look at all the pieces that you are going to put in your box as you go to put it in the box, it helps to put a prettier picture in the end.
