Graphic 45 Mother’s Day Shadow Box Tutorial

By Sandi Nagel

 

“Hello fellow paper crafters! Today I’m sharing a Mother’s Day gift idea.  I altered and embellished this Graphic 45 shadow box with papers and staples from Graphic 45.
 

The Graphic 45 shadow boxes come equipped with hanging hardware; but I decided to turn mine into a tabletop version with the Graphic 45 Antique Claw Feet.

 

 

The papers that I used are from the Graphic 45 Place in Time Deluxe Collector’s Edition.  I used the May cut apart papers, along with the purple from the March cut aparts.

 

 

Cutting Guide in Inches:

Background paper - 8 ½ x 8 ½ 

Inside strips - 1 ½ x 3 13/16  

Strips for the front - 9 ¾ x 13/16 

Strips for the sides - 9 ¾ x 1 ½ 

Middle of shadow box strip - 8 x ¾ 


 

I’ve put together a quick and easy to follow video tutorial of my project. I hope that you enjoy the tutorial. Happy Paper Crafting!
