CRAFT TUTORIAL: How To Make "Phoenix" Papercut Pop-up Lightbox - LightboxGoodman
The phoenix bird symbolizes immortality, resurrection and life after death, and in ancient Greek and Egyptian mythology it is associated with the sun god.
According to the Greeks, the bird lives in Arabia, near a cool well. Every morning at dawn, the sun god would stop his chariot to listen to the bird sing a beautiful song while it bathed in the well. Only one phoenix exists at a time, and so when the bird felt its death was near, every 500 to 1,461 years, it would build a nest of aromatic wood and set it on fire. The bird then was consumed by the flames.
A new phoenix sprang forth from the pyre. It embalmed the ashes of its predecessor in an egg of myrrh and flew with it to Heliopolis, the "city of the sun," where the egg was deposited on the altar of the sun god.

I really like this simplified design of the Phoenix box! I bought the files for the 9-layer design and I am having trouble finding a shadow box that is deep enough to put the 9 layers and spacers in and still have room for the light setup. Most of the shadow boxes available to me have only 1" or slightly over for the working depth. I wish this simpler design was available for the square box.
