Cut one of the scenes from the 6 x 6” card panels from the paper collection, trim and adhere to the inside the box. Add dries clear glue to the scene and sprinkle with Crystal Ultrafine Transparent Glitter. Finish folding at all score lines and adhere to form the shadow box. Randomly add glitter to the paper on the outside of the box.

Stamp sentiment on matching designer paper, ink the edges with Black Soot ink, cut a black mat 1/8” larger, adhere sentiment to mat layer and then to shadow box.
