Festive Shadow Box

In the same theme as my last post and using the same papers here is a mini shadow box book which I have decorated in a festive way. All papers used are from Cosmo Cricket 'Dear Mr. Claus' 6 x 6 inch paper pad (3d Jean).

The outside of the box has been embellished with some elements cut from the paper along with a red satin bow and hat pin (The Ribbon Girl)

The inside boxes have a variety of papers, wooden snowflakes, ribbon, metal charms, felt shapes etc.  Yes, the little Christmas tree is from my cake featured in the last post so it's 'waste not want not' recycling in action !!

The internal frame was given a generous coating of pale green transparent glitter applied with PVA glue.

I have used Distress Stain in forest moss and barn door along with the corresponding Distress Inks to colour edges and raw chipboard surfaces.

Really enjoyed making it !
