How Do You Make a Shadow Box Flower Without a Cricut?

Shadow boxes are a great way to show off your favourite flowers and plants in a creative and eye-catching way. But if you don’t have a Cricut, it can be difficult to create something that looks professional and stylish. Fortunately, there are ways to make a shadow box flower without a Cricut that will look beautiful and be easy to create.

The first step is to choose the right materials for your shadow box flower. You’ll need some sturdy cardstock or paper, scissors, glue, and any other decorations you’d like to add such as ribbon or glitter.

Then draw out the shape of your flower on the cardstock or paper. Make sure to include details such as petals and leaves, as well as an outline of the stem so that it looks like a real flower when finished.

Cutting Out the Flower

Once you have the shape of your flower drawn out on the cardstock or paper, use scissors to cut it out. Be sure to use sharp scissors so that the edges of your flower are clean and precise. If you want, you can also use a craft knife or hole punch for more intricate details such as petals or leaves.

Assembling Your Shadow Box

Once your flower is cut out, it’s time to assemble your shadow box. Choose a frame that is large enough for your flower (or multiple flowers), then glue it onto some foam board or cardboard backing with craft glue. Once everything is secured in place, add any other decorations you’d like such as ribbon or glitter for extra sparkle.

Finishing Touches

Once all of the pieces are in place, it’s time for the finishing touches! Use extra glue to secure any loose pieces in place and make sure that all of your decorations are securely attached before adding them into the frame of your shadow box flower. Finally, hang up your beautiful creation somewhere in your house where everyone can admire it!


Creating a shadow box flower without a Cricut can be done easily with just some cardstock or paper and basic crafting supplies! With careful cutting and thoughtful assembly, you can make something truly special that you’ll be proud to display in your home for years to come!
