Away in a Manger

How to make your Away in a Manger Shadow Box:

You will need:
* Shadow Box
* Raffia
* Paper (I used wood plank looking paper.  You can use what you want).
* Vinyl Decal - available HERE on our website We Cut Vinyl
      Vinyl decal comes in the following sizes for shadow boxes: for 5x7, for 8x10, & for 11x14.


1.  Cut vinyl decal into two pieces - manger as one piece, and words as another (keeping all the words together as they came - as one piece).

2.  Apply the manger to the paper.  I put it right down flush with the bottom of the paper.

3.  Apply the words Away in a Manger to the outside of the glass.  I put it towards the top of the glass, where I thought it looked the best (put the paper inside the frame so you have a reference of where the manger will be in relation to the words.
**You can leave the decal as one piece and apply the whole thing onto the paper - I like the dimension it gives applying the manger to the paper - and the words to the glass.

4.  Cut several pieces of straight raffia.  Use as much as you think you need.  I probably have 20-30 pieces in mine.

5.  Lay frame down so glass side in down.  Put raffia into frame.  Attach the paper to your shadow box backing - most are padded.  I just used the pins that came with it.  Put backing into frame.  Done!
