How to make it:

  1. Select elements to reproduce to cover the mat and the mounting board. Make copies on a color photocopier, or scan and print. Arrange the copies to cover the mat and the mounting board. Mount them with acid-free adhesive, folding some paper over the edge of the opening and adhering underneath.
  2. Arrange your three-dimensional elements and photos in the shadow box. Layer some photos on pieces of card stock cut slightly larger than the photos. Mount the items on the background and mat with adhesive. To add dimension, raise some elements off the background with dimensional adhesive dots.
