How To Make A Paper Flower Shadow Box Using Your Cricut Maker

Hello and welcome back! I am so excited to show you guys how I created this beautiful shadow box using my Cricut Maker!

For the longest time, I have been wanting to do a shadow box project and fill it up with mini paper flowers from Cricut’s Design Space and I finally got the chance to create this beautiful piece! I hope you guys give this a try and make your own shadow boxes using this tutorial. I would love to see your creations!

Materials Needed:

  • Cricut Maker with mat
  • Hot Glue Gun with hot glue sticks
  • 12×12 Shades of Purple cardstock Paper
  • 8.5×11 White cardstock Paper for Butterflies
  • 9×9 Shadow Box
  • Cricut Quilling tool
  • Cricut Vinyl & Transfer Tape

Before we get started on the project, let’s go over the materials! You will need your Cricut Maker and mat to cut 11 rolled paper flowers, 6 small leaves, 9 butterflies and vinyl to cut your favorite quote or saying! In this case, I had my eldest daughter write a message for her Grandmother using the procreate app. I saved my daughter’s message as a PNG so I was able to upload it to Cricut’s Design Space.

Find the roller paper flowers and heart stencil in Design Space here.

Find the butterflies here (Print & Cut File).

As for the leaves you can find those in the shop section of my website, otherwise, Cricut Design Space offers a variety of leaf designs that you can use.

Let’s get started! Once you have all the materials cut, you can get started on your project!

I hope you guys enjoyed this project! Shadow boxes make a great gift for birthdays, graduations, or keep it for yourself. Make sure to comment and share your own shadow box creations! I cannot wait to see them!

Thank you!

Stay crafty,
