Sarah takes you slowly through the steps of creating the shadow box layers. Her instructions are peppered throughout with hints and tips and she's not shy about making and fixing mistakes as she goes along making it all quite relatable. Thanks!

Materials List

Find out what materials and tools you need to complete the lessons in this class.

Creating the Frame

The first step to designing a shadow box is to create the frame border that all the 'pictures' in the middle of the design will be joined to. Create a square frame in this Lesson and add some pretty text to the top two layers.

Positioning the Snowflakes

This Class includes six free snowflake SVGs. See how to position them inside your frame to create dimensional artwork.

Adding Offset Layers

Let's add even more interest to our shadow box layers! The "Offset" feature in Design Space is perfect for building up the layers to make them look super impressive.

Merging Layers

Now that our shadow box layers have been designed, we need to join all the pictures and layers together with the frames from Lesson 3 to make them ready to cut.

Quality Control

We're so nearly finished with the design portion of this Class! First, though, let's quality-check all of the layers within our design to make sure they will cut beautifully.

Preparing the Cut

How to measure your shadow box frame and resize the design in Design Space to ensure the perfect fit.

Sticking the Layers Together

Once your custom shadow box has been cut out, it needs to be stuck together! Here's how to make a shadow box papercraft project with foam squares and glue.

Framing the Shadow Box

Get my top tips for framing your papercraft, including what to do it the back of your frame doesn't quite fit where it's meant to once it's all put together!

Class Conclusion

Congratulations on designing your first shadow box in Cricut Design Space! In this quick conclusion to the Class, let's recap everything we've learned and celebrate in our success!
