Every fall I get this burning desire to go visit places that are bursting with colors of birch, aspen and maple trees!
Living in Southern Cali we only get a tiny glimpse of fall color. To make up for that, I designed a shadow box art inspired by birch and aspen forests!
All you need are 2 pieces of paper!

To Start, download the template and print out the 2 pages. Here’s the pdf you can print, and Silhouette file of page 2 – I hand cut page 1 since it’s easy.
If you don’t use a Silhouette machine, no worries! It’s easy enough to cut with an Xacto knife. After cutting out the areas, gently score the lines where folds are needed. This will give a nice and clean fold later.
You can use a craft knife or machines like Cricut to print and cut the 2 pages.
Next fold and glue the 2 pieces so each become a box-like object. See photos above.
Place the background piece inside the frame piece, and use double sided tape or glue to secure them together.
To hang it, I used double sided tape, you can also make a little tab with paper or string, or place it on a table. Voila! Our little window to a fall birch forest!
