There are hundreds of examples on Facebook for those unsure of what to place inside, with many using it to surprise teenage sons and daughters.

‘This is the first shadow box I’ve done for my son’s 13th birthday. He was most disappointed when he thought he got a picture frame, but delighted when he turned it over and saw all of the treats inside,’ one mother shared online.

‘These are just some of the shadow box frames that I have done for our two children, husband and three of our nieces. They all loved them. Such a great gift, no matter the budget or occasion,’ another said.
