thanksgiving shadow box

Use a shadow box to create a special floral arrangement. Make it your own by adding a vinyl phrase to the outside glass.

Step 1

Open the shadow box and clean both sides of the glass.
TIP: The floral design will be created on the front of the back piece from your shadow box. Make sure the floral you choose will fit inside when your shadow box is re-assembled.

Step 2

Cut the floral stems shorter to fit inside on the back piece.
TIP: Create a design by overlapping floral and using the pears as a focal point.

Step 3

Close the box to make sure you like your design. Make any adjustments as desired.

Step 4

Now, use hot glue to hold the floral in place and close your shadow box.

Step 5

Use your cutting machine to add a vinyl phrase to the front of your shadow box. Click here for the design in Cricut® Design Space™.

Step 6

Click ‘Make It’ in the upper right corner and then click ‘Continue’ in the lower right corner of your screen.

Step 7

Place your vinyl sheet, grid-side down, onto your cutting mat and load it into your Cricut® machine. Select ‘Vinyl’ as your material and follow the prompts to cut out your design. Once the machine has finished cutting, gently peel the vinyl away from your mat.

Step 8

Use scissors to cut your design from the remaining vinyl sheet. Next, use your weeder tool to peel away the negative space surrounding your design. When you’re done, only the design itself should be left on the backer paper.

Step 9

Cut a piece of transfer tape that’s just a bit larger than the design. Peel away the tape’s backer paper and place the tape, sticky-side down, over this part of the design. Burnish the vinyl so that it’s completely stuck to the tape.

Step 10

Now, gently peel the white backer paper from the cut-out design, which now should be stuck to the transfer tape.

Step 11

Hold the transfer tape with the design over your surface to determine where you’d like it placed; then press it onto your surface. Burnish the vinyl once more to make sure it’s completely stuck to the surface and gently peel away the transfer tape, leaving the vinyl transferred to your surface.
