memorial shadow box

Make a project that will forever be part of your heart. Preserve a beautiful memory of grandparents that have passed with a theme and accessories.
Step 1

First, click here for the design in Cricut® Design Space™ and cut vinyl.

Step 2

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

Step 3

Peel away the tape’s backer paper and place the tape, sticky-side down. Burnish the vinyl so that it’s completely stuck to the tape.

Step 4

Now, gently peel the white backer paper from the cut-out design, which now should be stuck to the transfer tape.
TIP: Clean glass on shadow box for best results.

Step 5

Hold the transfer tape with the design over your shadow box to determine where you’d like it placed. Make sure it is centered and straight; 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.


Step 6

Add your photo to the back fabric of the shadow box and embellish the bottom with loose shells.
