How to Make a Personalized Shadow Box For Dance Pins
To make this shadow box for storing your dance pins, you will need:
- Shadow Box Frame – I used this 8×10 shadow box (available in multiple colors) and it works perfect. The width is perfect for storing dance pins and medals and has room to hold well over 100 dance pins! If you think you will need something larger, you can go with a larger sized shadow box.
- Permanent Adhesive Vinyl. For the dancer, I used this black permanent shimmer vinyl (which I am obsessed with) and purple for the name. If you are just getting started building up your vinyl supply, I recommend this variety pack of permanent adhesive vinyl.
- Cricut Maker or Explore Air 2 Cutting Machine (or any other cutting machine) and this machine mat for cutting.
- These Weeding Tools for removing the excess vinyl
- This scraper or something similar to adhere and smooth your vinyl to your wooden board.
- Transfer Tape for applying your vinyl
- Dance Silhouette SVGs (Download Below)
To make your shadow box for dance pins:
- Create a new project in Cricut Design Space
- Upload your SVG File and resize as needed. For the 8×10 shadow box, 8 inches in height is a good size to go with.
- Add the name to your design and place it in it’s spot.
- Send your design to cut and prepare your cutting mats. If you are new to using adhesive vinyl, make sure to check out this detailed tutorial on using Cricut adhesive vinyl and layering adhesive vinyl.
- Apply your design to the front of the shadow box.
- Add a color piece of vinyl or cardstock to the back of your shadow box. I used this shimmer adhesive vinyl and applied it to the inside of the back of the frame.
- Add your dance pins.
I love the way this personalized dance shadow box turned out! It’s such a great way to display (and not lose) all the competition dance pins. My daughter is new to completive dance, but she is excited to fill this up over the years.
