Step 2

Roll a few strips of painter's tape, and adhere them to the backside of a tarot card. This will allow you to attach the card to the shadow box without damaging it.

Step 4

Arrange several moon crystals in a circle around the tarot card, spacing them equally apart. We used eight crystals for an 8-by-8-inch shadow box, but you may need more if you use a larger box.
