Shadow Box


I have been playing a lot with designing my own SVGs. For this project I took inspiration from several shadow boxes that I have seen for sale and wanted to try and create my own. I kept it very simple and just created as I went.

The box is 8x8 with different size cubbies built in. I cut "liners" for each opening and glued them together.

Then I put a backing on to pull it all together. I am really surprised at how sturdy this has turned out. I still have some more tweaking to do. I went back in and enlarged the glue tabs. I also am going to add a couple of holes to the top so I can add ribbon for a hanger.20130225_093857
Though I do think for my first test drive at a shadow box this has really turned out well!
Let me know what you think!

  7. Wow-how nice is that! Until I looked at all your pattern pieces, I would never have guessed that this was made of paper. Think of the possibilities...use old maps, sheets of music, scanned photos from old high school year books or wedding albums (even if those papers need to be glued to sturdier paper underneath)-the ideas can be endless. Great way to display memorabilia. Well done!!!
