Light up Shadow Box Tutorial



Shadow Box



651 vinyl

Contact Paper


Rubbing Alcohol





Step 1: Measure the inside area of the front glass on your shadow box, I am working with an 8" x 8" sized shadow box.


Step 2: Cut out your vinyl to size - I made my svg 7.5" x 7.5" to leave room around the edge for error.


Step 3: Weed all of your vinyl and lay contact paper over top to be ready to place vinyl.


Step 4: Wash glass on the front of the shadow box with rubbing alcohol to remove any oils from your fingers.


Step 5: Apply your vinyl to the shadow box and squeegee on. 


Step 6: Cut out a piece of cardstock to size 8x8 for the background of the box. I used white but you can pick any color you'd like. Even a printed wood cardstock would look awesome.


Step 7: Add lights inside the shadow box put backing on VOILA!!
