Christmas Shadowbox Ideas

Looking for handmade gift to make this season? Let’s explore shadowboxes and letter block tray ideas with a Christmas vibe.  Our crew shows off some very cool ways to use trays you might already have, vintage trays you have picked up along the way or grab one of the 7gypsies trays and give a gift that will bring smiles.  Let’s begin with crew member Cherry Nelson with the beautiful shadow box filled with wonderful little details.

Holiday Shadowbox Ideas

If you have a box with lot of nooks and crannies, don’t worry about it, fill each space with wonderful little things.

Assorted small Christmas embellishments
Holiday Bottle Caps
Holiday Die Cut Embellishments
Miniature Light Pole
Miniature Silver Garland
Red & White Baker’s Twine
Assorted Ribbon
Tools Used:
scissors, paper cutter, die cut machine, hot glue gun

Fill in from the back forward giving wonderful dimension to your shadow box and don’t forget you can use the top if items don’t fit, not worry just layer them on top of each other and you will love the look just as Cherry is showing here.  If you don’t like the color of your shadowbox paint it a nice white, cream or black.  

To see more of Cherry’s work visit her blog – Cherry’s Jubilee  and follow her on Instagram – Cherrys Jubilee Designs.

Next Angelique shows us us how to take one sweet little photo and build a shadow box around it.  If you don’t have room for a 4×6 or 5×7, consider cutting it into pieces and placing each one in the squares around it to make a unique photo image and then fill in the other spaces.

So gather up some goodies, find a cute photo, snag a few vintage finds and begin to collect little bits and pieces to create a special shadow box.  The two featured are only 6×6, but you can make larger ones with more space to add so many more cute details.

Happy Creating!!!
