Shadow Box Pins

This is a special project I made for!

Shadow boxes aren’t just for walls or the fireplace mantles anymore. The concept can be shrunk down to make a cool lapel pin that offers a lot of depth, texture and sparkle.


  1. Cover work surface with newspaper. Remove the tin lid.
  2. Pour a puddle of Aleene’s® Original Tacky Glue® onto foil. Use the paintbrush to coat the inner sides of the tin with glue and pour desired color of Crafty Chica™ Chunky Glitters™ over the wet glue. Let dry then shake out excess glitter.
  3. Cut a circle from favorite Crafty Chica™ Mojito Papers™ design to fit inside the bottom of tin. Glue in place and let dry.
  4. Cut out desired image from a Crafty Chica™ Loteria Game™ game board piece. Glue a square of thick cardboard or foam core in the bottom center of tin and glue image on top. Let dry.
  5. Put the lid back on the tin. Measure and cut a piece of fabric or yarn to fit around the outside of tin and glue in place. Let dry.
  6. Cut a circle of fabric about a ¼’ larger than the tin, then cut out center. Glue onto bottom of tin, with fabric extending past edges. Refer to photo. Let dry.
  7. Glue the pin to the bottom of tin where fabric has been cut out.

Peace, love, and glitter!
