I made this shadowbox for my partner in the Mini 12 Days of Christmas Swap. Its numerous layers of paper I cut with my Cricut then layered in a shadowbox. I put a strand of fairy lights in the back!

I saw this in the thread and wanted to rip it out of the screen to stare at it. How was it made? How was it layered? How was it staggered? I papercut, so I was enthralled. But a cricut is such an easier solution.

Dreamy.Dreamy.Dreamy, lindy. I am JClover jelly today!

it is stunning!

I've tried papercutting with an exacto and I always cut the wrong thing or tear the paper.  it never occurred to me to use my cricut.

I do love handcutting, though. Such satisfaction.

Of course for a project like this..if I had one, I would go cricut!

JoyfulClover I think its about six different layers. I cut strips of cardstock and glued three together then put on on either side of the paper to create a small space between each layer. On the last layer I looped fairy lights and put the back in. The lights are battery operated and have a little remote.

Geekgirl I bought an SVG file on Etsy!

Using the Cricut is a total cheat! I dont think Id have been able to make it without though!

GORGEOUS! I really, really love the monochromatic white scheme you chose! Gotta love these digital cutting machines for helping to get to the next level with paper cutting projects! I was going to guess that these files came from Dreaming Tree, but I read that you got them on Etsy. Willing to share that shop name? I am always looking for sources for cool paper projects to cut with my Cricut!
