Video | Ikea hack, How to make a shadow box/box frame

DIY Shadowbox frame

This week’s Youtube video is now live and I am showing you how I use the Ribba frame from Ikea to make box frames ( shadowbox’s). These are really fun to make and you can experiment and play around with different materials, papers and fabrics. 

Have a peep of the video below and let me know if you plan on making them or if you have made some already I would love to see. You can tag me on Instagram @daintydressdiaries. I hope you enjoy this weeks video and don’t forget to subscribe for more videos. 

Thanks for stopping by,

    Hi. Can you PLEASE HELP ME. I Feel so annoyed and silly. I was trying to make a ribba frame using scrabble lettering. But I can't close the back securely. Can you please help me, what am i doing wrong. Could you please do a step by step wording. I've watched your YouTube video at least 10 times. Still can't figure it out. I know you don't show the assembling of the frame. Could you please show me. I'm at my witts end here, feeling quite useless to be honest. Even a insta stories clip. Just let me know when it's on. But I could do with it asap. Thanks

    Hiya x I got my glue from Inspiring ideas, also Evans art supplie os really good too and I think they sell that glue. Another option is to use a hot glue gun. You can get one of these cheap enough in the likes of tiger and crafts shops x
