sunshine 3d paper shadow box

Cut layers of cardstock with your Cricut® machine to build this beautiful Sunshine 3D Paper Shadow Box and place it in a shadow box frame.
Step 1

Remove the back of your shadow box and set the top piece aside.

Step 2

Click here to link to the design in Cricut® Design Space™.

Step 3

Cut the layers for your scene from cardstock and your word from adhesive vinyl. Set the word aside.
TIP: Hide (or delete) the translated version you do not need). The flowers are slightly off-white so the machine will separate the materials when cutting. Cut the flowers from white cardstock and the word from white adhesive vinyl.

Step 4

Use an adhesive tape runner to attach the bottom layer to the back piece of your shadow box.

Step 5

Use an adhesive tape runner to attach the next layer directly over the first.

Step 6

Place adhesive foam dots to the back of the next layer, so they will not be seen from the front, and attach this layer over the last layer.

Step 7

Repeat Step 6 for each remaining layer.
TIP: On the top layer, place an adhesive foam dot behind each ray of the sun as well as a couple of places around the sun and bottom edge. If needed, cut a small dot in half to fit behind the smaller rays.

Step 8

Now, clean the glass attached to the top piece of your shadow box with glass cleaner and a paper towel.

Step 9

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

Step 10

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 11

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

Step 12

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.

Step 13

Carefully return the top glass panel to the frame as well as the top piece.
