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!
