Assembly instructions

You may need to re size the file. I reduced it by 75% for download purposes
As a guide the box measures when made up is 11.5” wide x 11.5” high x 2.5” deep
 The light pink pieces are the main box components as shown below

 

 The darker pink parts are for the patterned paper decoration which cover the main parts of the box

 

 The orange coloured parts ore the inserts to the inside sections of the box to give a patterned background 


First of all cut everything including your choice of decorative/patterned paper

 Now glue all your patterned paper parts to the main parts

And now glue the inserts in place using the front frame as your guide to put them in the correct position

 Make up all your boxes that will form the sections inside the shadow box. And now carefully glue them to the front frame making sure you keep all the tabs within the frame otherwise you will see it from the front

 Once you have glued all these boxes in place glue the flaps that overlap each other for extra rigidity.

 Now glue the sides of the shadow box in place, I usually do one at a time, but you might find an easier way for you.. Once you have got all the 4 sides on then turn the box over to the back and glue the tabs that are overlapping on the 4 edges/sides of the shadow box.  Now you are ready to attach the back of the shadow box. Just glue it in place and now you are ready to add whatever you want to your shelves or more decorations if you wish
