How to assemble my 3D Papercut Shadowboxes.

Shadowbox templates have been a huge seller for me recently. Yay! and Thank you!

This How-to Video is for you if:
You have purchased the template and need to know what materials to use, or maybe you have cut the layers but now you’re stuck.
Or you need to know if if you’re doing it right.

Below are some of my more popular layered shadowbox designs.
So pretty with or without lights.

The video shows assembly of the 4 Leaf clover, but all of my shadowboxes go together the same way.

Assuming you have already purchased the template and cut it either by hand or with a craft cutting machine.
This is how you put it together. Quick and easy.

Materials needed: Shadowbox templates available here: Shadowbox Templates
Paper for cutting either with your machine or by hand. Cardstock or other heavy weight paper. I use Neenah 65lb cover paper from Amazon for most of my test cutting.

Double sided sticky foam tape. The thickest you can find. I purchased mine from Dollar Tree. Available on Amazon, Walmart and other stores.

Optional battery operated Fairy lights. Link to the ones I use from Amazon.

Please share! Sharing my designs in your groups and with friends is so appreciated.

Just kidding. (Maybe)
I’m sitting here in my little house drawing and doing geeky computer stuff to share with you so you can make pretty things too

    Thank you, thank you! I did test run on one of your templates and was confused on which way the layers went. While it is probably intuitive, I have an overthinking mind (when it works!)

    Thank you for your templates and instructions!
