Cave bear tooth display shadow box

Recommended Posts

aplomado

I just finished up a display case for my dad's cave bear tooth.  It will go on the wall.

 

The background is an old diagram of a cave bear jaw; I have digital copy.  I printed it on card stock at shutterfly.com.  It is really lovely.

 

I think the card stock looks a lot better than the regular print for this; with a coupon, it was free.

 

The shadowbox frame is a very nice one I got at Micheals; with a sale and a coupon I got it for about $7.  It is 8x10 and front opening.

 

I drilled a hole in the back of the frame and put in a copper wire loop for holding the tooth.  The tooth is removable.

 

The image I used is attached below, feel free download it to print your own.

 

I have one extra copy of the image printed on card stock, if someone wants it to make their own, I'll send it to you if you pay postage.  Can't promise the USPS won't bend it though.

Very cool display. 

I took the liberty of cropping and brightening it a bit, as well as rotating it.

It's my OCD. I can't help it. ;)
