Elena's Christmas Shadowbox


Elena shows us how she creates a Christmas shadow box:

'I am in love with Christmas Papers Mini pack. They are perfect for your holidays project. The tiny pictures are so wonderful that I decided to find a special frame for them. So the shadow box is a good decision for this purpose.

I took the chipboard shadow box and dabbed the edges with paint, then I cut some pictures from the Vintage Christmas Patterned Papers, distressed them and adhered to the chipboard.

After that I start playing with embellishments:

I decorated 2Crafty chipboard pieces

I added bells - Metal hammer, cut the sentiment and the wreath from the paper and glued them on a pad and added some Manor House Creations flowers

and added a Christmas bauble to finish

this shadow box is going to be placed on my daughter's room. She has already started her Christmas preparations and is very happy with these tiny treasures.
    I am sure you have already started thinking of your home decorations, so I hope this will inspire you to create something special too.

Fabulous shadow box Elena - well done.  Love all the little spaces & how you have embellished them.  The use of the mini papers is wonderful & shows us how they are not only used for cards.

A very creative & inspiring project

Bye for now
