Baby Jesus Shadowbox Craft

I absolutely love how this craft turned out!  The best part is that it is so simple and quick to put together!  What a great, last minute gift or decoration for the season!

You will need

A shadowbox

Black vinyl

A Silhouette machine (optional, but they really are great and cut the vinyl like a dream!)

Decorative Shredded paper (the kind you get for gift baskets)

12 x 12 Scrapbook paper with a rustic look

Firstly  cut out your silhouette of baby Jesus.  I found one that I had saved on my software, but I am not sure if it was one I purchased or got from a friend so I can’t share it.  Sorry!

This would also work great if you were to cut it out of black paper and glue it to the INSIDE of the glass on your shadow box.  Just be sure you use some adhesive that won’t show up when it is dry.

Open your shadowbox and place the vinyl (or scrapbook paper) on the inside of the glass.  Now, if you are lucky and your shadowbox comes with a nice background you can avoid having to use the scrapbook paper.  Mine had a really nice burlap look to it,but I still chose to use the wood look paper because I really liked it.  This burlap looking fabric would’ve been really great too!

Now that your silhouette of Jesus is on the glass, fill the frame to your liking with the paper shreds. Once you have it the way you want it, put your paper in and close the frame.

It is really such a great piece!  The shadowbox gives it depth that just a flat frame and scrapbook paper wouldn’t give it.  What a great gift for someone on your Christmas list!
