a miniature Christmas magic shadowbox...

I know, I know, Halloween isn't even here yet and I'm posting about Christmas!
 I can't help it, we got the cutest Christmas paper pad in from Carta Bella and I just had to make something with it. The pad is called Christmas Wonderland and it's got the cutest tiny Christmas prints and sweet little deer on it. Along with the adorable pad, I used one of our brand spanking new Mini Wood Printers Type Tray Shadowboxes to make a sweet little display of some of my favorite holiday things.
The shadowbox is pretty small, about the size of a photograph (4"x6"), and didn't have any feet to stand on or a hook to hang it with so I decided to use one of the small easels that Prima Marketing has started selling. It's a perfect fit for the shadowbox...
I love the way it makes the whole thing look pulled together and complete.
If you come in a bit closer...
you can see some of the fun miniature things I used in the cubbies. There are wrapped gifts, old books, magic potions and yummy things to snack on. I dug up an old deer and some Scrabble tiles from my stash to add some nostalgia and topped the whole thing off with a lovely embellished "pine" swag.
Not gonna lie... I had so much fun working on this it inspired a second project, using the same shadowbox, that will be featured in Sunday's newsletter ;)
Now, if you just can't wait for Sunday to do some shopping... here's a link to my supply list to get you started.
Thanks for stopping in and celebrating the upcoming Christmas season with me!

Teri I love this! I just purchased two from Aloha Stamps and I am wondering HOW did you manage to measure all the little boxes without going bald? I am going to back mine also and I feel there has to be some useful trick to this. I am not so great at measuring lol!
