If you aren't LDS, then this document won't make much sense to you. Our Church keeps a record of Priesthood Lines of Authority - which I sent in a request for so I could do this project.
This project could be done with any document that you want, so even if you aren't LDS, the technique could be something you want to try.
I emailed email@example.com and they replied with an attached form to fill out and mail in. The stipulation is that you have to be requesting your own record or that of someone in your household - and they will need some info including the membership record number.
Once I received that in the mail, I retyped it and printed it out on vellum paper. I debated doing this on a transparancy sheet, but opted for the frosted vellum look.
I used a 10"x10" shadowbox frame and positioned the vellum (with a paper border) up against the glass. The picture below is of the document inserted into the frame.
Next, I used a template for a tie from Crap I've Made (that I had first used to make a tie onesie for my son a few months ago) to cut out the pieces in a fabric and batting. The tie wouldn't show up unless it was closer to the glass since the vellum isn't completely transparant. So I cut one tie out of the fabric, and 4 ties out of scrap pieces of blanket batting since that's thicker. Depending on the depth of your shadowbox frame, you may need less or more thickness. You could do this out of paper and not even use a shadowbox frame with dimension.
Then I glued the pieces together and adhered them to the center of a 10" square cardstock. Next, I inserted the paper/tie into the back of the frame and closed it up. Voila! A dimensional framed tie and document.
