7 Responses to Silhouette Shadow Box Advent Calendar

  1. Thank you for this blog as I just got my the cameo a few weeks ago and it came with this box, so this has been a huge help. I have been using this as a guide to help me. I am getting ready to put on the “decorations” and noticed you created your numbers, i had thought they were stickers. Did you measure each box to figure out what size font you need for each number? Thanks!

    • Hi Debby! This is a great beginner’s project…it will really help you learn your way around the machine! I used the rectangle tool in Silhouette Studio as I was cutting out each drawer and “drew” a rectangle the same size as the front of the drawer – then I used that as my sizing guide for creating the numbers. You can use any font you want for the numbers! I cut some of mine out of printable gold foil, and the others I cut out of double sided adhesive and then added glitter. Hope that is helpful!

  2. How did you make sure they were going to cut out the correct size to fit into the designated spot on advent calendar? The “default sizes” appear to be too large. I just cut box 10 and it is way to big.

    Thank You

    • Hi Jennifer, I just used the designs from the download card that came with the shadowbox…they were definitely a tight fit in the boxes but they did fit perfectly. Make sure you’ve got the right side up on your shadowbox, I think I had trouble at first because I had it turned the wrong way. Or maybe you resized it accidentally? Sorry I can’t be more help, I know that mine fit without having to do any tweaking though!

  3. I love this advent calendar, I tried to purchase on the site you suggested but nothing comes up.
    Could you please help me try to purchase I would like to make 5
