This configuration box is a salute to the Fox TV series Sleepy Hollow, but you can easily customize it to fit your favorite show or movie. Just brainstorm iconic images from the show, source, then get to glueing.

  • How to make a shadow box. Sleepy Hollow Configuration Box  - Step 1
    Step 1

    Decide how many boxes you want to use and how you want them configured. If you're not sure what you'll be putting in the box, don't glue the boxes in permanently just yet.

    Then cover your box with scrapbook paper and use tissue tape to cover the edges. Or you can paint the box.

    Look for papers that go with the theme. I used DCWV Dark Romance and a Christmas tissue tape from Michaels.

  • Step 2

    Next, you want to collect items to go in your box. Think about icon images from your favorite show.

    This box has two of the four white trees, Washington's Bible, Ichabod's son's golem doll, Revolutionary War figures and the headless horseman's head in a jar.

  • Step 3

    Glue your items into place in each of the chambers. Then add other embellishments such as ribbon, fabric flowers, old pieces of jewelry, or printed items you made yourself like the Sleepy Hollow sign.

    You want to give the box texture and depth, so don't be afraid to let items hang out of the box or paint them to make the colors match.

Hmm...not sure how to answer that. If you watch the TV show Sleepy Hollow, you'll recognize the objects in the box. It's just my way of celebrating my new favorite TV show.
