Hello Super Crafters!!!
The measurements fot the shadow box in the video is 3x4 on the inside and 4x5 on the outside. I've listed the measurements below for this particular size with a .25 tab for gluing it all down. If you need the tab to be larger you'll need to adjust your measurements.
Score on the short side (this matters if your using an 8.5x11 piece of chipboard or cardstock…and that's exactly what I used on the tutorial).
So, from 1.75 your next starting point is 2.25, you will not score on 2.25. From there you will go out however wide or tall you want the inside of your shadow box to be. In the tutorial I'm going for a 3x4 inside space. so my next score line will be at 5.75. Again, my formula for that is half inch form the last score line of 1.75, plus 3 inches, plus another half inch.
These are the next score lines, same side we've been scoring.
The above score lines will give you the outside wall, top wall, inner wall and glue tab. You can cut the excess off or just at 7 inches.
To score the long side, rotate your paper/chipboard and score at on the following measurements:
Same as the first section.
Your next score line will be at 6.75, half inch, plus 4 inches, plus another half inch get's you to 6.75.
Last score line set:
Cut the excess or at 8 inches.
Your overall size will be 7x8, I don’t start off with that size, I typically will start with a whole sheet incase I decide to go bigger or smaller.
You will now have 4 tiny score lines to make. To me it doesn't matter what sides I score.
If you want to add some ribbon to hang your shaddow bow now is the time to do it as well.
And viola!!! your done.
Thank you so much for watching and or reading…happy crafting!!!
