Merci Chocolates Shadow Box with Video Tutorial

Today’s project is another version of the Merci Chocolates Shadow Box that I shared with you last week and, by request, I’ve created a video tutorial for you!

Here’s a different view:

And here it is with the Window Sheet belly band removed:

Perfect for a sweet Valentine’s gift! Here’s my video tutorial:

And here’s the template I shared. There’s no need to create the little tabs for this project, so just ignore those (wink).

  1. I saw Merci chocolates and thought of you and your Merci shadow box. Unfortunately it was the gigantic box they carry at BJ’s. I love this dsp excellent choice for Valentine themed projects. I will definitely be giving this a try.

  2. Just watched your video again (exciting Saturday night). You do such a great job explaining. I have more of those chocolates on my shopping list for tomorrow. I made a bunch of the single chocolate holders for my trip to Vegas in December. They were a big hit. I gave them to everyone. . . The flight attendants, the ladies at the front desk at our hotel, our servers, housekeeping, the lady who printed our boarding passes. Everyone was so surprised when they got a treat. And your bow in this is awesome!

  3. Hi Julie,
    I just made your shadow box and loved it. I will be sharing this with my card group for our February day of card making. Thanks for the fabulous directions and video!
