What’s Included

Papercut Shadowbox Template. An apple for your teacher.

8 layers of papery goodness for you to cut and assemble yourself. It’s not as complicated as it looks!
Includes 10 alternate versions shown in the photos above including with an empty layer for you to customize – name, date, initials or whatever you want.
Cut all the layers from white paper or add some color as I did in the samples. So pretty!

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.
Add fairy lights between the layers, or leave it unlit. The results are spectacular.

8 layers assembled with double sided foam tape between the layers will be 3/4″ to 1″ deep.
