Footprints Shadowbox

Footprints DIY Shadowbox directions:


  • Stamped Metal Vintage Cross
  • Paper house scrapbook sheet, I used Faith
  • 12"x 12" SPC White Shadowbox Frame
  • Double sided scrapbook adhesive
  • E-6000


  1. Open the back of the shadowbox, and remove all extra backing paper and filler.
  2. Run the adhesive tape along the four edges of the back of the shadowbox.  Make sure you peel of the backing or the scrapbook sheet won't stick.
  3. Place your scrapbook sheet on top of the adhesive, make sure that it is centered.
  4. Apply the E-6000 to the back of the cross, place on the upper left hand corner of the scrapbook sheet.
  5. Allow the glue on the cross to dry, let it sit for about an hour.
  6. Insert the back of the shadowbox into the frame and close with folding pegs.

Helpful Hints:

This is a super simple yet elegant DIY project.  There is enough room next to and below the cross for a nice picture or two.
