How to Make a Cricut Halloween Shadow Box

Okay, crafty friends: the moment you’ve been waiting for! Here’s how to make the cutest ever Halloween shadow box – just take a look at the following easy-to-follow instructions:

Begin by uploading the Bat Shadow Box SVG design to your cutting program of choice (for this blog post, we used Cricut Design).

Resize the design so that it fits inside your shadow box. If you are using a 9×9 shadow box, we recommend resizing the design down to 8.5 inches by 8.5 inches. However, it is best to measure the inside of your box to be make sure.

Once resized, follow your program’s directions to cut each piece.

For this particular project, the pieces are placed in order of how it will be layered (please see image below). The design labelled as #1 will be the design that goes on top, then the next one behind it will be #2, and so on and so forth.

For this Halloween shadow box, you will be layering each piece on top of each other with the help of double-sided foam. This gives space between each layer. Alternatively, you can also cut paper straws into small pieces and glue them between each layer.

Begin with layer #10. Cut 4 pieces of double sided foam and add to each edge of the layer. Add layer #9 on top.
