DYI Shadow Box Gifts Using Wine Corks


I absolutely love to do crafts in my spare time and here are a couple of really fun ones to do using your silhouette machine, shadowboxes, scrapbook paper and some corks from Oriental Trading (bag of 50).  These are so easy to make and are great gifts for friends and family.


For the first one, I bought an 8×10 shadowbox and cut out the “The Best Wines are the Ones We Drink with Friends” design using permanent adhesive vinyl (Oracle 651) which I laid down on the top part of the glass. For the inside of the box, I cut scrapbook paper to fit the backing and glued one cork onto the paper so that it hangs at the top. For the rest of the corks I just let them lay loosely in the bottom of the shadow box.


The second one,  I used a shadowbox bank from Dollar Tree and removed the vinyl design with acetone so that I had a blank box (this is a great way to save money when buying shadowboxes).  The only difference is, these are made of plastic frames instead of wood.  I then typed out the saying in my silhouette software,, cut it out of Oracle 651 and placed it on top of the glass.  Lastly, I cut scrapbook paper and added the corks.
