A printable 3D diorama paper shadow box pop-up theater. Features a whale in the sea with the man in the moon on a stary night. This small project is approximately 4" inch square by 1" inch deep and makes an excellent Christmas tree ornament! Print and cut by hand or use your Cricut cutting machine to print then cut! You will download 3 PDF files and 2 PNGs in a Zip folder. These files include the hand cut and Cricut files, detailed written instructions and photo references. This project is recommended for ages 12 and up. 

Other things you will need to have:

Photo quality white card stock (preferably 80 lbs) in 8 1/2” x 11” inch size; Small, sharp scissors (I recommend Cutter Bee brand); White craft glue (Aleene’s original Tacky Glue is superior!); A ruler or hard, straight edge; A creasing aka "scoring" tool with a smooth, (not sharp) pointed blunt tip (a wood toothpick with the tip bitten off works fine for me); some small pieces of corrugated cardboard and some chipboard (a cereal box works) for making the spacers; some ribbon or string for making a hanger, acrylic gold paint if you want to paint the back of the finished ornament.

*This file is for PERSONAL USE ONLY and is intended to be printed only by the purchaser (as many times as they like) for personal use or gifting only. These files may not be used for commercial purposes or offered for sale in whole or in part without permission and licencing. You may not redistribute or share these digital files.
