So here is another Shadow Box Frame we made last week. Go here to see the other one made from a piece of 12” Painted Blooms paper.
This was the practice sample for everyone at the All Day Event…but it was quickly put to good use with a stamped Canvas Creations panel.
Got to love Sheltering Tree for a quick home decor project…..
And just in case you are wondering…the other Seasons will be shared at some point…. thought I’d concentrate on the Tutorial first….
First thing to point out… both of these Shadow Box Frames were made in exactly the same way…. so following this Tutorial will make either Shadow Box Frame… this one starts out with an A4 piece of cardstock whereas the Painted Blooms one starts out with a 12”x12” piece of paper!
Second thing to point out…. definitely easier to make these in cardstock! So try one in cardstock first!
And the third thing…. a scoreboard makes this a very easy make! I am now making these in just over 5 minutes…though your first will take 20-30 minutes!
2. With A4 card PORTRAIT - make an “extra score” at 2 ½” from top to 2nd score-line down and from bottom up to 2nd score-line up
13. Now onto the 2 notched ends (narrower ends if using A4) …. Repeat process for the 2 straight sides BUT…. and this is the MOST important TIP…. Remove red protective cover on the 2 small diagonals and cover with some longer lengths of scrap red protective cover
16. Repeat for the other notched side.
And there you have it…one 1/2” section Shadow Box Frame with perfect mitred corners!
From A4 – 11cm wide x 19.5cm high (about 4 1/4” x 7 3/4” high) with a back panel about 8 .5cm wide x 17cm high (about 3 1/4” x 6 3/4”)
And I guess that in the US (with 8 1/2” x 11” cardstock) you will end up with a 4 1/2” Wide x 7” high – and a back panel of 3 1/2” x 6”
And here is the 12” card/Painted Blooms paper version – nice 8” square back panel there….
