A Victorian Christmas Decor/Tableau

Hello Bloggers

I opened one of the new Victorian Christmas Papercraft packs & decided I would do something different with it.  Decided to do a decor for a mantle, an entrance hall table, a sideboard in the diningroom or wherever you want a touch of Christmas

Front view - I used grey/blue cardstock.

  The panels at the back of the piece are 6" sq with a join in the middle. The panels in the foregound are 11.25" x 3.5" with a tab attachment at the end.  The whole piece folds up with a ribbon tie at each end of  the main back piece. The little lady in front is a separate piece with an easel back.  Cream cotton lace with antique blue velvet forget me nots, some green paper leaves & copper organza ribbon with a blue edge  are the only embellishments on the foregound panels.  The ephemera were chosen so that the sizes matched, somewhat, on each side

The Papercraft pack contains 6 pieces 5.4" square plus 6 matching/same strips 2" x 5.4" - all of them were used here - 4 on the front & 2 on the back. All or the images are included in the papercraft pack. There were several images not used - these could be made into tags, mini cards or used on a layout.

Hope this gives you some ideas for decorating the house or office for the Holiday season.

Bye for now
