Video Tutorial for Shadow Box Sampler
Click the video below for complete step-by-step instructions on how to make this beautiful sampler.
For a complete list of materials, see the product ordering list at the bottom of this page.
First, prepare your cardstock pieces for the shadow box sampler. Cardstock pieces will measure:
- 1 – 8×8″
- 9 – 2×2″
- 9 – 1 7/8″x1 7/8″ designer paper
Next, lay out and adhere 2″ x 2″ and 1 7/8″ square cardstock pieces to large cardstock.
After you’ve measured and glued the square panels, adorn with sentiments and stamps of your choosing. I love the soft, neutral colors I used in this shadow box sampler from the In Good Taste designer paper pack.
How beautiful is that?! This sampler is a perfect decorative gift to give to friends and family.

Nice tin. Lovely saying.
Can you please tell me what size the shadow box frames were you ordered from Michaels?
Also do you know if templates can be bought for spacing? Love your frames!
Hi Carol, I just now found your comment. My frames are 8″ x 8″. I am not aware of any templates for spacing, but I might have to keep that in mind to possibly create some at some point. Thanks for visiting and commenting 🙂
