I recently made a Christmas shadowbox for a friend and thought I would share with you. She wanted one that was done in a very retro vintage style. So I included lots of old card images and started looking around in my stash and local craft stores for little goodies to add.
The shadowbox itself is by Tim Holtz. It's called a Printer's Tray.
This was such a fun project! I had a hard time parting with it, once it was finished.
I painted it a bright cheery red color and started layering my embellishments.
The majority of patterned papers are by October Afternoon. The rest was made up of older items in my stash and the card images that I printed from Pinterest.
I found some great little pieces to add to it from the doll house miniatures section at my local craft store.
What's nice about these boxes are that the boxes are removable, so I could have changed it had I need to have it more customized.
It was a fun process to gather images for this project. I tried to always pick bright bold colors that would print nicely.
I think this is my favorite little box. I love the 2 cute little bottle brush trees.
This small wooden train was the perfect little addition for this shadowbox.
Hope you are enjoying this Christmas season!
Thank you for stopping by today.
Wishing you a merry day, Lindsey
