Assembly

To reduce the width of the shadow box, we added 4 scrap cork pieces to each corner. We then measured and laser cut scrap wood to size (pictured below) and placed it on top. You can use any scrap material you may have on hand to reduce the width – wood, acrylic, etc.

After engraving and cutting the pieces, have your guests sign a heart and place into the box. If the positioning of the pieces is important, we suggest applying small amounts of wood glue to the back of each heart.
