I chose to create a trio of shadow boxes for a display ready for Christmas.

I can hang this on my wall or pop it on a shelf, wherever the fancy takes 😉

Here is my Shadow Box
decor item for Christmas.

I have used a selection of gorgeous stamp sets and DSP for this gorgeous decor item.
For a full list of items please refer to the carousel at the end of my blog.

Here is a quick template using 12 x 12 DSP shadow box each score line is 2cm apart. So score at 2,4,6,and 8 cm then turn and score again until all four edges have been scored. Turn and score two lines 4 cm long 1 at 10cm. and another 2cm before the other four score lines. Refer to picture below. Turn and score opposite ends identically.
Trim away corners following xxxx cut lines.

 Follow instructions as above to complete the shadow boxes..

The stamp sets used are Carols of Christmas stamp set and the Christmas Pines stamp set.

They create the most gorgeous wreath, what do you think?
