What to do with riffle casings from grandfathers funeral?

My husband and son each received two bullet casings that were fired from a riffle at his grandfathers funeral. He was is a veteran and they had a very nice service for him. I am trying to come up with a creative way to display them. Maybe I can incorporate a picture... Any ideas?

If you can get ahold of a Army picture, even just to copy it, you can frame it and have the casings next to the picture(s).

*rifle

That's a good idea. I was thinking of getting a recent picture from Christmas or New Years and putting it in a "grandpa" frame. Then super glue two of the casings to the two sides. Might be to soon to have them look through photos for a military one....

I've heard of people making key chains. Not as classy but nice if they want a daily reminder or some way to carry him with them.

They sell these amazing cases to hold the flag that was draped over the casket. You could then add the casings and any medals he was awarded to that display case.

No I'm not one of thoooose couponers!!!

Thanks everyone! I lOve shadow boxes! Unfortunately, I don't think it will work in this situation. We only have the 4 shell casings. Unless I do a shadow box with them and a current picture... I think I might.

Check the Dollar Tree (if you have one nearby). They sometimes have nice looking small shadowboxes in the craft section.
