Hello! Shellye along with you on this Friday with a couple of projects from the new "December Documented" Collection. I wanted to try something a little different in the home decor arena and came up with this sweet 3-D shadowbox of a winter wonderland scene.
I started with an 8 X 8 matchbook box that I painted a pretty bright green. I cut a panel from one of the December Documented papers and placed it over the opening on front of the box. Next, I worked on the 3-D scene on the inside of the box. I layered a variety of papers and cut white cardstock into snowy hills that I glittered and outlined in pom-pom trim.
The chipboard snowflakes were glittered with an iridescent glitter and then applied. To the bottom of the box, I added a cut-out title strip and then dovetailed it at each end before attaching.
I wanted to add a little height to the top, so a wooden scroll frame was adhered to the back of the box. Such a project can be hung (just add a ribbon hanger), added to a wreath or simply sit on a sidetable. Change up the sentiment and the piece can be displayed throughout the winter months!
