ShadowBox Frame - Square ... Thinlits - Die Cutting Templates by Eileen Hull and Sizzix (no. 665938). Finished box frame outside size is 4"x4", sides are 3/4" wide and deep. Plus 1 FREE Sizzix Storage Envelope.
Make your own square boxed frames and turn it into a greeting card, add flowers, create a scene (landscape, seascape, cityscape, rainbow), frame an artwork or create a book box - or anything else you can make with a sweet shadow box frame like this.
How ... Cut the main piece 4 times to create your 4 sides of the frame. Fold along the scored foldlines and adhere each long side with your favourite fast drying glue. Tuck the square end into the diagonal end to give the look of a mitred corner and glue in place.
Tips ... Adhesive tape is great as it grabs quickly. Just be sure to use adhesive tape that lasts as you don't want your frame falling apart in a few months from using the cheap and useless kind!
... I use Tim Holtz Distress Medium and find it most excellent for making frames and models. I simply hold it together for 10 seconds for each side then once assembled, leave to dry. Once completely dry, it is quite sturdy even if made from thin old book paper.
Decorate the frame to suit your mood or the theme you're creating, whichever you wish :) Take your time and have loads of fun!
You can make frames from all kinds of preloved papers, gel prints, scrapbook paper, cardmaking cardstock, Tim Holtz Distress surfaces, collage sheets, old book pages (as I have used in the photo) or any other paper that works with Thinlits. If used in conjunction with the Rectangle Shadow Box Frame Thinlits (sold separately, also available), then you could also create frames that are 4"x5" and 4"x6" in size.
This set contains 7 templates - 1 (one) frame length and 6 (six) embellishments. Assembled frame (approx) : 4" x 4". Each side is 3/4" wide and 3/4" deep. Inside frame area is approx 2 1/2" x 2 1/2".
Thinlits are designed by Sizzix to help you create intricate and detailed elements in papercraft quickly using simple techniques of die cutting shapes and layering them over each other. Use colours that make you smile!
Sizzix Thinlits die cutting templates are wafer thin, chemically etched, metal templates designed to cut, emboss or stencil a single sheet of cardstock, paper, stencil plastic, metallic foil or vellum. Because of their fine details, Thinlits may require up to three passes to cut. If extra help is needed for easier separation of the die-cut shape from the template, place wax paper between the Thinlits die and your material and then roll through your preferred machine.
Use with any Sizzix die cutting and embossing machines including the Sidekick (use the Extended Plates, sold separtely), and also compatible with most hand-turned machines. Check with your machine for which plates to use. All machines sold separately.
Store the dies inside the included Sizzix Storage Envelope (also available separately) then keep in a Tim Holtz Sizzix Storage Binder (sold separately). For easy identification, slip the printed label into the envelope with the dies.
