A Christmas gnome paper shadow box template. These cute Christmas gnomes are said to originate from Europe and Scandinavia and go by several different names; Gonk, Nisse and Tomte depending on the country they are from. Whatever the name, they always have an oversized hat that covers their eyes and long white or grey bushy beard which just adds to their appeal.
This shadow box is designed to have micro LED lights at the back so they shine through the moon and stars to give a Christmassy atmosphere. Once complete, it will look great hung on the wall with your other Christmas decor!

The materials you will need to complete this project, in addition to these templates are:

- A square shadow box frame
- White/various coloured papers/card for the shadow box layers
- Foam board or corrugated card to create the spacers
- Micro LED ‘fairy’ lights
- Glue

There are files that can be used with a cutting machine such as a Cricut or Silhouette or you can download and print the handcutting files and cut with a craft knife/scalpel. 

There are handcutting templates (PDF) to create an 8” x 8” version or a 9” x 9” version of the shadow box.
All the machine cutting files (SVG, DXF, EPS) can be resized in your cutting software if needed.

If you intend to cut the design with your cutting machine, please ensure that (at least one of) the vector files mentioned is compatible with your machine before purchase.
