Sorry to be the guy who recommends a solution and then has to take it back, but there's no way that 25' length is going to fit in the 9"x20" shadowbox. A fellow AVS'er who has completed his marquee (non-backlit) brought his over this evening, and I got my Costco rope light out of the box, and... well, there's no way that's going to fit.
The instructions for the rope light say "Do not puncture, cut, shorten, or splice the flexible lighting." Maybe that's just a generic CYA statement, but good luck with your experimentation, and be safe.
Again, sorry to get everyone's hopes up... I was just trying to help.
