25 Days of Gift Ideas: Shadow Box

This time of year, we typically have our family photos taken and of course send them out to family and friends.  This is a nice way to dress up those pictures and make them wonderful for display!

Using the CTMH My Creations Bracket Frame (Z1797) and the Flirty Paper Pack (X7160B).  You can  cut the bracket out using the CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge <Square4>.  Cut the bracket at 10.8", then place on bracket with repositionable adhesive.  Flip the bracket over and cut out the center on a Versamat (Z1279) and the Cutting Knife (Z1252), then adhere with permanent adhesive.  (If you have a Gypsy or are comfortable with the Center Point button on your machine, you'll be able to use the Cricut to cut the square from the center of the bracket.

To create the shadow box effect, you can adhere the photo to the back corner pieces of the frame.  Or, stack pieces of our 3D Foam Tape (Z1151) to adjust how far back you'd like the photo from the opening of the frame.
