What’s Included

Butterfly Garden 3D SVG paper shadowbox template.

This is a digital file download. No physical item will be sent to you.
13 plus layers of papery goodness for you to cut and assemble yourself.
Layers are numbered to make assembly easy.
Complete assembly instructions are included.
Note: this is not a beginner level design. There are small bits to be placed and intricate cuts to be made.

This template design is for personal and commercial use.

Sized for 8 x 8 inch shadowbox frame (it looks great unframed too!), but can be resized easily with your machine cutting software or through your printer settings.

13 layers assembled with double sided foam tape between the layers will be 1 inch to 1.5″ deep.
Please measure the depth of your shadowbox to assure it will fit. I used an 8×8″ frame from Michael’s and it’s a tight fit.
I did not add lights to this box, but you can if you desire.

This template download contains many elements in a single zip folder:

1 PDF Instruction file. Download and read this first.

2 SVG files for Cricut users. 1 with layers stacked together. 1 with layers unstacked in a single file.
