halloween memories shadow box

Reflect on a past Halloween memory by making a shadow box that can be part of your decorations. It will look so cute on a shelf, mantel or hung on your wall!
Step 1

Measure a piece of scrapbook paper 5"x7" [12.7 cmx17.8 cm] to fit into the shadow box. This will be your background. Use a paper trimmer to cut it to size.

Step 2

Print out a square photo of a past Halloween experience keeping the size close to 4"x4" [10.2 cmx10.2 cm]. Cut it out with a paper trimmer.

Step 3

Cut a black piece of cardstock to act as the border and frame to the photo. Cut it out and use a tape runner to attach the paper photo to the card.

Step 4

Use the paper trimmer to cut the phrase out of a page from the paper pad.

Step 5

Arrange the photo and phrase onto the background paper making sure it looks good when in the shadow box. When you like your layout, use the tape runner to hold it in place. Place the embellished background paper into the shadow box and close it.

Step 6

Add a coating of the clear glue over the outside edge of the shadow box. Sprinkle the gold stars over the glue and let it dry.

Step 7

After the glue is dry, finish the project by adding the bat stickers. Place the stickers as if the bats were flying around the photo.
