Christmas Ornament with Shadow Box – Video Tutorial!

Today’s project is my project from last night’s Weekly Wednesday Facebook Live – a Christmas Ornament with a Shadow Box!

Here’s a closer look at the ornament:

I’d like to give credit to Samantha Clayton (mixedupcraft.com) who originally designed this ornament. Her tutorial includes a shadow box for 4 ornaments, so I decided to figure out a small shadow box for just 1 ornament.

Wouldn’t this make a special gift for someone? You can fill it with treats if you’d like!

Here’s my video tutorial:

And here is the template for the ornament:

Here are the templates for the side panels for the shadow box – you’ll need to make two (2) of each:

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you’ll try making one of these to give to a special someone this holiday season! Have a wonderful and blessed day!
