Valentine sausage dogs layered paper shadow box template.
These amorous sausage dogs are the perfect kitsch decoration to adorn your home for Valentine’s Day. The dachshunds have dressed up in their finery for their Valentines date.
This shadow box is designed to have micro LED lights at the back so they shine through the hearts to give a warm fuzzy feeling. Although as the photos show, it looks equally as good without the lights.
I have included two copies (left and right) each of the hair bow and bowtie so that it's equally as easy to make this for a same-sex couple. Of course you could choose not to 'dress' the dogs at all.
Once complete, this shadow box could be given to your own Valentine to show them how much you care. Or you could make it as a wedding or engagement gift for a quirky, daxie-loving couple!
The materials you will need to complete this project, in addition to these templates are:
A rectangular shadow box frame
Various coloured papers/card for the shadow box layers
Foam board or corrugated card to create the spacers
Micro LED ‘fairy’ lights (optional)
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 6” version or a 10.5” x 8” version of the shadow box.
All the machine cutting files (SVG, DXF, EPS) can be resized in your cutting software if needed.
*Please note the SVG files will only work in the desktop version of CanvasWorkspace (Scan N Cut software), they will not work in the web/online version as it has more limited capabilities than the desktop version.
I am unable to give any advice on your particular machine or software. Though please see my FAQ section for solving common issues with SVG and DXF files: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/seasaltandsamphire#faq
