CHRISTMAS DECOR




I LOVE CHRISTMAS! After i was done making my Halloween shadow boxes I decided I needed to have some Christmas ones!! So Here they are. Sorry the pictures are not the best, but i will describe what i did for each one of the. I wanted to make sure i represented both sides of Christmas. So that is why i made one to honor the meaning of Christmas and the other ones is the spirit of Christmas. 

HOLY NIGHT:

Once again I am sorry about the reflection of the glass! On this one i wanted to make the Nativity scene. I used the manger from Paper Doll Dress Up and all of the Nativity characters where taken out of the Winter Frolic Cartridge. I used some paper that looked like wood for the manger and then some brown paper for the beams in the manager. I then used gold brads at all of the joists to look like the nails holding the manger together. Before I started to put the Nativity characters down i used some hot glue and added some straw to the background. I used different layers of Foam Squares to give the Nativity characters some depth. I added some stickles glitter glue to different parts of the clothes to give it some sparkle. I laid everything with a star background and once the shadow box was closed and sealed I printed the "O Holy Night" on Printable Vinyl and stuck it to the glass on the outside of the box. I used stickles diamond glue on the lettering.

CHRISTMAS COLLAGE:

It looks like this one would take the least amount of time, but it was the hardest. I love the Word Collage cartridge, so I wanted to make a Christmas version. I printed the Christmas version out on printable vinyl and stuck it on the outside of the box. Once printed i had to take all of the extra pieces off and use transfer paper to get it on the outside of my glass. I used different colors of stickles glitter glue and called it GOOD!!

NORTH POLE:

I LOVED LOVED LOVED making this one. I used Santa's Village Imagine Cartridge for the North Pole Buildings and I used Paper Doll Dress Up for the characters. I took white paper and used foam squares to give it two different layers. I put the village on the different layers to give them some depth. I used some stickles glitter glue on the characters and then once again i used foam squares to arrange the characters at different depths. Once i completed the box I used printable vinyl for the sentiment on the outside and used some stickles glitter glue to give it color and to finish it off i added some silver embellishments to give it that last little touch.
