Follow up on my Wedding Shadowbox

A slightly modified version: I welded some of my shapes to the frames and cut it out. The words “forever and ever” did not get cut out properly so I took them off. I also realized the parts are not numbered correctly so there is a link to to the updated version of the file. If you want to use the original file the piece 1 and 2 are reversed.


  • The section with “love” on it is section 3, the number got hidden.
  • The previous file had ” forever and ever” on section 2 with the rings but it did not cut how I wanted so I took it off.
  • The flowers and birds I did not put on my finished card but I think it would look lovely and may do so next time I make this. make sure you ungroup and mose these pieces off the cutting area if you don’t want it cut out.
  • I also did not use the square plain piece for the back. I was going to fill with a pattern and print but decided not to. I left the extra piece in  for anyone who would like to do so.


This is what the file looks like now:

Finished Project



Project Summary:

Evaluating my Wedding Shadow box
The project got an overall score of   47 out of 48. The total time was about 20 minutes

Most importantly, the question is, would I make this again? Yes (Biased a little?)

Is this project versatile? The frames can be used for any shadow box, just insert your own images. The objects can also be used in other cards or scrapbook layout.

Materials used: 2  different color cardstock, a bit of glitter Glue.Silhouette CAMEO®

The pieces were few and easy to layout on the mat, and easy to cut

To cut all the pieces, and to fold the score lines took about 10 minutes,  another 5 minutes to glue.Give yourself  15 to 20 minutes to complete for the first time.

 Tutorial for this project: here is what I suggest

  1. open file and ungroup pieces. The extra pieces move to the side and cut piece 1 and 2 together and 3 and 4 together
  2. folded all the fold lines
  3. Glue tab of “4” to straight side of “1” and tab of “1” to straight side of  “4”
  4. Pieces “1” and “4” from a box.
  5. fold all the fold lines of “2” and “3” if you have not already done so. Pieces “2” and “3” are inserted and glued to the inside of the box formed in step two.
  6. Glued decoration to cake (layer 1)
  7. Glue heart under “love”
  8. finished!

This project can be done by younger kids with guidance.
