Graphic 45 Wall Art

Hi everyone, It’s Joann with you today to share a fun Christmas project.  This week Core’dinations and Graphic 45 are doing a blog hop, stop by and check it out for a chance to win some great prizes.  With the Christmas season fast approaching I remembered one of my favorite traditions.  Every year the family goes to see the local production of the Nutcracker so I dug out my G45 Nutcracker paper collection and this is what I came up with.

To make this project follow these steps.

Step 1
Cut all of your pieces out in the paper you choose.  I used a White card stock.

Step 2
Assemble your shadow boxes.  Each of the boxes except for the largest one is 2 pieces the same size so matching them up is easy.

Step 3
Attach the largest frame to the front panel and then start attaching the individual shadow boxes starting in a corner and working your way out.

Step 4
Once all the shadow boxes have been attached, fasten on the back panel.

Step 5
Cut a piece of your Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Seasonal Impressions and using your Sand It Gadget, sand all the panels to show off that lovely embossing.  Don’t forget yo use your Dust Buddy to clean-up the dust!  Once you are finished your sanding attach the pieces to the front of the assembled unit and start decorating!

  3. Your meticulous detail is stunning. I have never seen a shadow box made with anything other than wood. Thank you and the Christmas baubles are gorgeous, too. I live in Halifax as well and I am enjoying the sunshine this morning. Keep up the great crafting works.
