    Brian is my husband and he recruited me to help build the shadowboxes. I'm the one with foam adhesives sticking in my hair, glue and glitter on all my fingertips and my tongue sticking out to get that eye on perfect for you.

Welcome to The Paper Pony Place!

Thanks for stopping by!

Here at The Paper Pony Place, we are making shadowboxes that bring to life your favorite characters.

What is a shadowbox?

Shadowboxes are cut pieces of colored card stock layered into a deep set picture frame that create 3D images using shadows.

Are the shadowboxes able to be hung on the wall?

All of our products come in frames and are ready to be hung up upon purchase. Most frames are either black or white and come in either 12x12 or 8x10 (though some are bigger depending upon an agreed amount with the buyer).

All shadowboxes are created digitally first then made with hand selected colored card stock, cut from a die cast machine and layered by hand using rubber cement, foam dot adhesives and a steady hand. Everything in the box is crafted from paper including detail lines.

Please contact us if you have any further questions or would like a custom piece!
