It's time to get crafty and that's just what I did yesterday - for the better part of the afternoon. I thought about starting my wreath but I wanted to do something that was easy and this craft was, I did one and then just kept right on going, it was that much fun. Everything I used was from the dollar store or vintage things that I had thrifted. I shared one last night on Instagram, some people wanted to see the five others that I made, so here it goes - my shadowbox creations!
This is the first one I made, I filled it up! I used thrifted vintage wrapping paper for the background.
I used a page from a vintage Christmas carol book for the background on this one. The next one, my first green box, is back to the wrapping paper background.
When we came home through the US this fall, I bought a never used booklet of children's Christmas cards, just like the Valentines we used to have, the kind that you would cut out and make the envelope. This background is one of those cards.
I knew that book of cards would come in handy for something!
My only one with a white frame, done with the wrapping paper.
I really enjoyed making them, so much so that I went back to the dollar store this afternoon and bought two more three packs of frames!! I'm on a roll!! This would be a great Christmas craft for any age - I had a bag of little bits and pieces that I had thrifted last year, I hope I can find some more when I go out later in the week!!
I don't think I can pick a favorite, I like them all!!!
