Make A Cricut Shadow Box
I love that you can create personalized gifts with Cricut that are simple to make and look amazing. So, below, the following instructions help to make your Cricut shadow box.
You Will Need
- The box Frame.
- Cricut Maker or Explore Air
- Card stock of a variety of shades to fit your chosen color scheme
- Led box lights ( If you’d like to illuminate your project)
- Brayer tools.
- Glue as well as sticky pads.
- Cricut Cutting Matt
Paper Flower Shadow Box
- Different color paper
- Cutting tool
- Your first task is uploading your floral template to Design Space. You used various shades and colors of paper for this work. It is best to pick one color for each row of flowers or one for each of the two rows to get the optimal outcomes.
- The back side of the box is covered with a complimentary paper color.
- Before starting, take the frames back from the shadow box. Draw the back on the side of the box’s shadow box on cardstock. Trace the shadow box onto paper to cover the base inside with a pencil. Then, cut it out using cutting tools.
- Use liquid glue to secure the box.
- Begin by placing the open end of the rosette, facing your right-hand side if you’re right-handed or towards the left-hand side if you’re left-handed.
- When you reach the point where you’ll naturally hit the center, that is the bloom’s center. Put the rosette down on the table, and allow it to loosen a bit but keep your fingers over the top to keep an eye on the amount it comes off.
- If you are satisfied with your creation, add glue onto the base, and place the top of your flower on top of it to ensure it is secure.
- Repeat this process for the rosette you rolled to fill your DIY shadow box.
- Begin to attach the rosettes to your shade box by arranging them in rows. I suggest gluing the darker flower shades on top of your shadow box and gradually moving to lighter shades.

- A box Frame
- Led box lights ( If you’re looking to illuminate your project)
- Spacers are made of glue or glue dots and sticky pads.
- Cricut Maker or Explore Air
- Weeding and brayer tools.
- Cricut Cutting Matt
- Cricut Design Space
- Begin in Cricut the design area by choosing two squares. Create one square slightly smaller than the other, then slice it until you have the square frame. It is the support edge of each layer. Repeat this process you’d like to make.
- Start to sketch your pictures. Select the theme for your box. so I looked up rainbow balloon clouds, sky, and clouds. Cut any portions of images that you don’t need.
- I wanted to make clouds as a background with stars. To achieve this, I chose several cloud shapes and used squares to make corners and edges.
- Please select a star on the left side shape bar and duplicate it several times to create many stars. Adjust the size of the star and place the stars over the clouds.
- Repeat this process until you have the entire paper cut. Please ensure your images’ position inside the Cricut shadow box is in the correct order.
- Before cutting the images, choose the colors you’d like each layer to have. It is helpful to color the images in the design space.
- Layer each cut piece one over the other so they’re the same, and then attach the images. They’ll still be cut differently, but this can be helpful when making the cut size.
- Once you’re satisfied with the dimensions, click cut. Also, you will need to cut a square for your background in case you would like a simple background for the Cricut shade.
- After all the pieces are cut, please place them in order and begin building the cut paper. Make use of the glue dot or stick pads to build the image by first gluing the background.
- Layer by layer until the Cricut Shadow Box is finished and place it into the frame.

- Shadow Box Frame
- Three hues of paper
- You want to cut out the heart in different colors of cardstock to draw it on.
- A piece of white 12-X-12″ paper to draw a heart shape on
- It is a clear glue that appears when it is dry.
- 3D frame
- Cutting map
- LED light strip
- Cricut machine.
- Then flip your shadow box over, with the glass facing downwards. Unlock the back. Utilizing a scraper, you can remove the pad covered in canvas connected with the back material.
- You need to cut the posterboard into sizes you can cut out on the mat.
- Cut it with the foam board into strips approximately 1/2 inch wide.
- Make sure you have your poster board. Download the Paris file into Cricut Design Space. The size of each square to 9 inches. The first mat with only the circle in the middle could be cut out using an opaque piece of paper to frame the picture (this is an option). Click “Make It.”
- Place your poster board on your mat, and proceed according to the instructions within Design Space to cut.
- After you have removed all of the pieces of cardstock, you need to weed them to eliminate the unnecessary ones.
- Flip each piece over on its back and secure foam core sections on the back using hot glue. Each piece will be layered, then foam core till you get to the back. Then, place the 3-D stack inside your frame, with the Vellum facing the back.
- To attach a light strip, remove the backing and place the sticky tape strip inside your frame until it is around the edges. You can either turn on the lights or off. Enjoy your new 3D Art!
