Hocus Pocus Shadow Boxes

By Shannon Hannah


“Hello Graphic 45 friend, today I want to show you my magical Midnight Tales vignette Boxes.

I absolutely love Halloween the crisp wind, the leaves changing colors, not too spooky stories, hearing kids say “trick or treat”, BUT most of all I love the decorations.

Graphic 45’s Midnight Tales is the PERFECT collection to make some eye-popping decorations.

In my tutorial I’m going to show you some techniques I used to give my vignette boxes a 3D effect.” ~Shannon
