Now over to the team for inspiration 

I've created my own shadow box with thick chipboard. For this creation I've used lots of Tim Holtz and Ranger products.Come over to my blog Neon diary to get more details about this project.

Finally got the chance to use some of my papers and do something I have never done before - decoupage

I love creating Shadow Boxes, this one has my favourite theme too! Texture, metal and die cuts with some stamping work so well with Steampunk.

A funny nick name from me is Miss Shadowbox ;-),
I also love this Boxes, because the great 3D effect shows little stories better.
More details to my mysterious shadow wall you can see on my blog.

My shadow box was made with a 6 inch premade frame and turned into an underwater theme with various paints, pastes etc. See my blog for details

My shadow box is made of fish can (doesn't stink at all - I swear) and shows a happy crafter's place. Pop over to my blog for more details.

I created a match-shadow-box with an underwater theme. Jump over to my blog for more details.

I used the backside of a mini canvas for my shadow box and filled it with gathered treasures from one of my most favourite (and enchanted) holiday places.

I created this shadow box using a packaging box and combined various techniques with Graphics 45 papers. You can see how I made it by going to my blog.

I created this shadow box using the backside of a canvas. I made the background with stencils, structure paste, distress. More details you can see on my blog!

My shadow box was inspired by my love of sewing - and by items in my sewing box that came from my late Nan and from my Mum - who I still look to for sewing advice!!

From my talented team, over to you all, we look forward to seeing all your fabulous shadow boxes. Please feel free to enter the configurations type of boxes or those ones that look like houses, just because we all used square or rectangular style ones, doesn't mean you have to as well!
