Step-by-Step Papercut Fox Lightbox:
Print out each layer of the template and choose a colour for each layer (it works best to have the lighter layers at the front.
Cut around the template with the coloured paper below so that you cut the two pieces at the same time.
Once each template has been cut you can use sticky foam pads to layer the coloured elements together, if you want added depth you can double up the foam pads.
When all the layers are assembled add a final sheet of tissue paper as backing.
You can now begin to tape down the LED lights around the back of the box frame , making sure you can still put the back of the frame on.
You can glue the battery pack to the back of the frame or to the side so that you can access the switch when desired and then hang your beautiful artwork.
