While paint is drying, use your black marker to draw a family portrait onto a sheet of white paper. Make sure that your drawing will fit inside the box. Use scissors to cut around your drawing.

Step 3: Put it together

Assemble your shadow box. Trim the neon drip paper to fit in the box and paste down with glue stick.

Paste down the portrait onto the flick paper. Make two holes on the top of the box and thread through your string and then make a knot. Display your artwork on the wall!
