Shimmery Skeleton Shadow Box


Give your home or office a touch of shimmery delight with a shadow box decorated in vibrant Crafty Chica™ Chunky Glitters™! Add images from your favorite Crafty Chica™ Inspiration Cards™ for a daily pick-me-up!


  1. Cover work surface with newspaper. Squeeze a puddle of desired color of paint from the Crafty Chica™ Little Chica Paint Pack™ onto foil. Basecoat the inside and outside of frame and let dry.
  2. Use a clean paintbrush to coat the inside of the frame (sides and top only) with Aleene’s® Original Tacky Glue® then immediately pour a layer of glitter over it. Let dry then tap away excess glitter.
  3. Paint desired pattern on the front of the box with colors of choice. Let dry. Working in small sections at a time, cover pattern sections with glue and add glitter to sections as desired. Let dry.
  4. Use handle of brush to add dots of paint on top of glitter for more dimension. Let dry.
  5. Choose one card from the Crafty Chica™ Inspiration Cards™ and cut out images from the card to place in layers within frame (front, middle and back).
  6. Glue the back layer to the inside back of box. Add a bead of glue to the bottom of the second image and hold in place in middle of box until it stands upright. Glue the third image in place in the front of box.

Peace, love, and glitter!

  1. I love shadow boxes. My students are making boxes out of clay with their own designs. These are shadow boxes or wood frames. Would it be also correct to call them Nichos? Thank you for the pictures. I need to post mine.
