Shadow box ideas for your CricutShadow box ideas for your Cricut

I've got some lovely Cricut shadow box ideas to inspire you - I hand-draw my own designs so that you get a shadow box template ready to put together that's unique and original.

I like to make my shadow boxes look intricate but easy to put together, so don't worry about making the layered project - it's lots of fun!

I also share with you what you'll need for your project and exactly how to put the layers together to get the best results - so all you need to do is decide which shadow box you want to make first..!

I like to make my shadow boxes colourful and fun - so that they look great even if you don't want to add lights to the back (although you can do so if you wish). I've found that it's a bit of a hassle trying to get the lights in, and wondering where to store the battery pack - and then you forget to switch them on - so that's why I design primarily for shadow boxes without lights - so that you can get the best results!

I share alternative colour combinations for you, too, so that you can feel inspired to get creative with your own colour choices - or just stick with the ones I picked, it's up to you!

Files come in SVG/DXF/PNG/EPS formats - ideal for Cricut, Silhouette, ScanNCut and other cutting machines, or cutting by hand.

You can use the files for personal use or commercial use (small-business only - up to 200 products).

You can only use the files for physical (craft) products - no digital products or sharing.
