    Hi ladies,
    I bought a similar frame from Michael's. It's called a floating shadow box (didn't see it on their website, but they have it in stores). The only catch is that there are only two panes of glass, so you have to buy two frames and add a third pane of glass into the first frame. The panes are adjustable so there's actually an additional slot to put in the extra pane of glass from the second frame. The best part was that they were on clearance for $7.99 each!

          Ok, so I purchased my frame from a fellow BWD bride. I've read through all the directions and I'm going to try it tonight. I'll keep you ladies posted on the outcome!

            My umbra ether frame came in from amazon...

            When I was explaining to FI and family the plan they looked at me like I was crazy! It's an 8x10 frame but you have to use it vertically (skinny and tall) to put in the sand.
            I'm going to glue in the panes and try it out but I'm a little skeptical...

                I am going to try to glue this together soon also! We leave on Friday and we have to get our sand ceremony frame ready to go! We have the umbra one too. We'll let you know if we get it to work. :)

                  Can anyone give me an estimate of the amount of sand that will fit in the ether frame. I tried gluing my frame yesterday at my mom's house so left it there to dry. I will let you ladies know how it went in a few days... i am not very optimistic. If anyone has success gluing can you let us know what glue you used! Thanks!

                    Hi ladies! I haven't read through the previous posts, so someone may have already said this. We just used the Umbra frame for our sand ceremony and it did not work! Well, it worked fine for the ceremony but started leaking pretty much right away. We've since dumped all the sand out and will do it again. We're going to glue in the back two panes and are confident that will solve the problem.

                    This frame came from another bride on here who used it over a year ago, and she said it never leaked for her. I'd love to know her trick!

                      I tried using glue made for glass....but that didn't work. I ended up using a hot glue gun to glue the back glass pane, took out the third glass pane, and hot glued the second glass pane. I re-inserted the first glass pane...no glue. I did a test using colored sand i purchased and it didn't leak....hopefully it will work once I use it for the actual ceremony...lol!
