Lighted Shadow Boxes

Hello! It's been too long since I've blogged! I was laid off from my job in November and have a lot of time to craft and am finally getting around to actually blogging about it. Before Christmas I got a little obsessed with lighted Shadow boxes! When Design Bundles had their $1 deals they had a few shadowbox SVG files that I purchased. I was instantly hooked! I started to design my own SVG files on my computer and cut them with my Brother Scan n Cut 2. 

Each layer is a separate page that you layer on top of each other. I found a great tutorial on how to assemble them here. I got the LED lights on Amazon. 

 I created the box with paper too. I used a heavy cover weight 120lb card stock for the box. I used a 65lb weight cardstock for the pages. I made all mine 8" x 8", which worked well for detailed pages.

They are so much more impressive when they are lighted up! I decided on plain white lights but you can get colored ones too. 

I covered this box with paper I stamped with a wood grain image.

The best TV show ever :) Supernatural. 

The possibilities are endless! I'm sure I'll be making more. Thanks for checking out my creations! 

Have a great day!
