DIY Paper Shadowbox Nativity Scene + Free SVG Cut File!

Hi everyone! In this week’s tutorial, we are creating a paper nativity shadowbox scene! The results of this project are beautiful!

Materials needed (for the hand-cut method):

  • Card stock – the paper you use needs to have some thickness to it. I suggest white card stock for the inside and glitter or colored card stock for the stable.
  • X-acto knife
  • Fairy lights or other small lights
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • 1/4 inch thick foam core board or similar to put between layers
