Coastal Craft: Seashell Collection Boxes

Display your beach-combing finds by filling a picture frame with seashells and showing off their nuances of color and shape. Mount one kind of shell -- or as many types as you can find at your vacation spot this year.

If you don't want to use a picture frame, how about an old soda crate; wooden file box or shoe box?  We love the idea of filling up a shadowbox with shells too.  Seriously, the ways to display sea shells are endless, aren't they?  As you know, I have a ton of shells but no display boxes -- maybe there is another project in my future...

Here is one of our all-time favorite displays done by Cheryl of Beachcomber; she used an old printer's tray!
