    That is very cool! I wish I had a silhouette so that I could create stencils. I did some etching without a stencil and it didn’t work very well! Thanks for linking to my Pin Me Linky Party.

      Thanks! I have really terrible handwriting, so the Silhouette saves me on a lot of projects!

    This is awesome! How much did you pay for the shadow box itself?

      Hi Kateri – I think it was originally something like 24.99, but I had a coupon for Michael’s for 40% off. I need to wait for another great coupon so I can make one as a Christmas gift!

        I saw these shadow boxes at Michaels yesterday for 40% off through this weekend! 🙂

          Your timing is amazing… I was on my way to Michael’s when I got your comment. Thanks for the tip. I also had a 25% off coupon, double score! I’m not sure yet if I’m making one for a gift or one to hold our beer coasters.

    Great idea!! Your post was the only DIY wine cork/bottle cap I’ve found in my frantic internet search! What did you use to adhere the stencil to the frame?

      Hi Kari – I used contact paper (which is sticky on one side) and it worked great to stick to the glass but come off easily afterward. I’ve also used Martha Stewart stencils that I’ve found at Michaels on other projects. They would also work well since they are adhesive on one side. Good luck!

    That came out FANTASTIC! I love your step by step tutorial! Our daughter is getting married at a Vineyard here on Cape Cod this Fall….a perfect time to make one of these so she can have hers filled by the end of the weekend! Maybe I will make 2. lol Armour Etch also works really well, brush NOT included! 😉 See? Even after 2 years this was a GREAT Post! Thanks For Sharing!

      Sounds like a gorgeous location for a wedding! I think you’d have a good chance on filling up two. 😉 Thanks for stopping by, and good luck with the wedding!

    How many corks will fit in the box? I’m thinking of doing this as a wedding sign in for the guests as we are having a wine themed wedding. Thanks, yours looks great

      Hi Kathleen – I think we have about 80-100 in ours right now and it’s about two-thirds full. I hope this helps!

    This may be a stupid question but how do the corks get inside the shadow box? Do you open it all the way every time you add a cork or is there an opening to pop them in?

    Was this really glass, I recently went to the Michale’s to pick up the same shadow box and it’s some type of plastic…?

    Hi! I tried to buy one of these (prefab) with a groupon and the company never delivered. I want to use the refund & your guide to make one. Unenlightened question: are you printing the stencil at home onto contact paper and cutting it out? Or do you have it printed/cut somewhere? I tried looking up silhouette studio to figure this out & their website is down for maintenance.
