I excpected this product to arrive assembled, but alas it didn't. I'm not very good at assembling, but I figured it out
the directions aren't great, but they help. I finally got it glued together and when it is completed , I think it will be beautiful. The shadow box in the middle is quite small, 5" wide by 5 4/8 long, but you can make it beautiful anyway
I did a nutcracker sweet scnene and it is quite nice
the little boxes are a challenge also, but with super glue you can get them glued together.
