Paper Diorama / Figurine Holder

Hi there, I am back with another 3D project tutorial. I have literally gasped when I first saw Becca Feeken’s new 3D card dies. This is the type of dies that I have been waiting for – the one that allows you to easily create a diorama or a shadow box template just by cutting out all elements and then assembling it.
My favorite die set from this collection is Grand Arch 3D Card just because it has a simple rectangle for an outline which makes it super versatile and suitable for all styles.

This project might look super complicated when you first see it – but I assure you it is much much easier to make than it seems because most of work is already done for you by the die creators and it is really just about die cutting and putting it together!

I have used this gorgeous die set to create a diorama that holds a plaster figurine. You could also place any other small things inside like a pot with a succulent or a cactus, a tiny vase with real or artificial flowers or any other treasured memorabilia.

I have also used some other Spellbinders dies that coordinate great with the 3D card template – the gorgeous Nordic Tree made a perfect background and it fits right inside the arch! I combined the flowers and leaves from different sets to twirl around the trellis and I finally added a die cut sentiment to a label and placed it at the bottom of the arch.

Watch the video tutorial for the step by step guide on how to make this project:

I hope you enjoyed today’s project and got inspired! Thank you so much for visiting and if you have any questions I’ll be happy to answer them! Have a beautiful and sweet weekend!
