- Four different sized rectangular nested dies to cut a window into the front of your shadow box
- One ornate die to cut an ornate window into your shadow box front
- Bonus: large double word dies (which include an ornate word Die and a matching shadow layer that fit as sentiments on the shadow box card. Words include: “Happy Birthday” and “Hello”
Directions for metal craft die use:
- Gently remove the metal craft die from it’s packaging
- Using your favorite die-cutting machine, lay a piece of strong card-stock facing the sharp edges of the die and run the required “plate sandwich” through your machine (please note that different machines use different die-cutting sandwiches)
- These dies are thin steel dies and they work in most available manual and automatic die cutting machines, such as your Vagabond, Cuttlebug, Gemini, Gemini junior, Spellbinder’s Platinum, Big Kick, Big Shot etc.
- Dies work on different thin materials, including paper, cardstock, specialty foiled or glitter papers
- Cut a desired opening into the front of your shadow box using one of the provided rectangle or ornate dies
- To assemble the box, cut the main box panel twice, fold the score lines and connect the tabs of the panels to each other’s box panels to create a three dimensional shadow box.
Please note: Use strong double sided adhesive to connect both pieces together. To make your Pop up box strong and long lasting, we recommend 100lb to 110lb card-stock.
- Cut up to three hill bridges, fold on the score lines, attach strong double sided adhesive and place bridges inside the pop up box side panels, ensuring strong bond with the sides of the box. Bridges can be varied in height.
- Cut the decorative panels for the sides, the back and the interior back from colored or designer pattern paper
- Once your box is assembled, feel free to adore and embellish your project with stamped images, embellishments, and or die-cut images. You can attach images straight to the bridges or use acrylic sticks to create a floating design element or to suspend images in the air
