Shadow Box Photo Frame

Today’s make is this easy pretty photo frame.


I got the idea to make these after I made my Window Box Gift Box.  As these are deconstructed you can make these any size and design you want so the ideas are endless.


To make these photo frames you will need…

2 pieces of 3 x 7 patterned card

Score along the 3′ side at 1/4, 1.1/4, 1.3/4 & 2.3/4

2 pieces of 3 x 5 patterned card

Score along the 3′ side the same as above.

2 pieces of 5 x 7 card one piece for the back and one for the front frame.

A rectangle die measuring approx 4.1/2 x 3.1/8

Score along the  4.1/2 side at 1/2

Small piece of card to hold the stand 3.1/2 x 1.1/4

Score along the 3.1/2 side at 1/2, 1.3/4 & 3

A flower and sentiment of your choice for decoration.

My favourite Kraft card is by Docrafts, you can also pick up similar brands on Ebay & Amazon, also in other parts of the world it can also be known as Wood Pulp Card so try searching that also.

My unbranded flower dies are from Ebay but you can also find them on Ali Express and Joom.

Check out my full tutorial below to see how I’ve made them.



Hope you enjoyed this nice home decor and gift idea.

Happy crafting
