Welcome To My Palace

I hope you enjoy your visit to my shadow box palace! Alpha Stamps now carries these wonderful small paper theatre boxes that come flat and then can be easily folded into a box. That way, you can store several without taking up too much space and can create a wonderful palace of your own. You can also purchase clear acetate windows and there are several great collage sheets that are sized just for these boxes.

I love the fact that you can purchase Alpha Stamps Collage Sheets as a digital download. That way you can print up as many as you need to make a 3D look by attaching layers of the same image. I did this in several of the rooms for curtains, chairs, tables and more.

As you can see below, I attached all of the boxes to a trimmed piece of cardboard with glue. Middle boxes were added first with glue placed on back and one side to attach them together. I repeated this with the other boxes and attached all edges that came together to make it one large palace. Because it is joined into one piece, I can attach a ribbon and hang it on a wall.

Thank you for visiting my palace and if you make one of your own, I would love an invitation to visit.
