Hexagonal Shadow Box

Hi, friends! This is June.

It’s time for sharing a new monthly project with me here.

I absolutely love shadowbox and tunnel cards, because both of them create a three dimensional scene with a sense of depth. 

The project that I am going to sharing is the shadow box featuring an adorable stamp set SWAN SOIREE from Lawn Fawn. Of course this shadowbox is also a paper circuit with Red and Green LED’s Sticker from Chibitronics. If you pull the tab on top of the box you can see light-up on the background. 

It’s nice to have each of those shadow boxes stand up, but it can be gorgeous interior decoration if you make and adhere four of them together like the picture above and hang them on the wall.
There are four hexagonal shadow boxes in the picture, but now I am going to share only about how to make the swan family scene of blue one.
The paper circuit work looks complicated to make, but if you follow this video tutorial carefully with my template which I designed you will be able to make a great piece.

1. Download Template

First of all, you should download the hexagon Shadow Box Template that you can see in the picture above. And print it out on a light colored paper.
The template shared above is an instructional material that make this task easier to follow. It takes a lot of effort to make this kind of thing and takes days, but I’m so happy sharing this to educate my paper circuit. 

2. Stamping & Coloring

Stamp, color and cut the images from the SWAN SOIREE stamps by Lawn Fawn.

3. Building a Circuit

Attach copper tape and Red & Green LED’s Sticker from Chibitronics according to the number order on the template above. And don’t forget to connect the broken part with several pieces of conductive fabric tape for letting the electricity flow.

3. Coloring Each Layer

Before assembling each part, color each layer gradually in dark colors with ink blending. I used blending tools with Dye ink pads from Altenew.
Here’s another colored one. This one is featuring a cute stamp set YEAR TEN from Lawn Fawn.

4. Assembly

Assemble the parts according to the video tutorial above, you will complete a hexagonal box that can feel a sense of depth like the yellow and pink boxes in the picture.

5. Create Scene

After that, attach the colored and cut images beautifully to the each layer of the hexagonal box. Then I finished off my piece by stamping a sentiment onto back of the box.
Don’t forget to check if the LED’s turn on by changing its color.

I hope that you like my card and thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy day!
