Birthday Chocolates Shadow Box

Today’s project is a sweet shadow box that holds 4 Merci chocolates all wrapped up as a little birthday gift!

Here’s a different view:

And here’s with the Window Sheet sleeve removed:

The tag was created using the Celebration Thinlits Dies and features a sneak peek of a new Occasions Catalog stamp set called Picture Perfect Birthday. This shadow box is only 3/8″ deep, 4″ wide and 4-1/8″ tall to fit the Merci chocolates. To keep the chocolates in place, I created a sleeve out of our Window Sheets. Here’s my video tutorial:

Here’s the template I shared:

    1. Oh I love shadow boxes and the more videos the more comfortable, we will be in making them…besides you love doing themcute Valentine’s packet, will it fit gum packets?

  1. I don’t know where I have been but I just discovered you and your site. Wow, what I have been missing! Your videos are the best. Great job.

  2. I’m loving all the different boxes you’ve shown us! Such a cute way to give little gifts. And I agree with Brian – you are really, really, REALLY good! The queen of shadows boxes. I would love to see a video on this one too. Thank you so much for sharing with us. Happy New Year to you and your family.

  3. Adorable project, I love the Melon Mambo color. With a different tag it’s the perfect gift for my Lovely Lillie’s teacher. Naturally you need to make one for Noble Nolan’s teacher.
