Examples of Shadowboxes

This page contains some samples of shadow boxes to give you an idea of what one is and what can be done with them. All of the following shadow boxes were made by Bob Gecy at The Shadow Box Frame Gallery.

Shadow boxes are similar to picture frames, but they have sides giving them more depth and more space inside to put all sorts of things.
