Shadow Boxing, Holiday Style

Getting ready for a Holiday craft workshop at the end of this week. Here's my Christmas Shadow Box, to be used as a sample. My craft bag is packed and I'm lucky the store supplies the scissors and glue guns. I had fun shopping antique and thrift stores for holiday tchotchke and figurines. I got some great deals as you can see from my box above.
The pocket backgrounds are from leftover patterned papers. I first used Ranger Inks Stain to give my natural wood box some holiday color. The white "dots" you see on the joints of my box's pockets are from the felt ribbon I used to go around the outside of my box.
I love how the altered shadow box turned out and look forward to  Christmas day when my guests will come for dinner and see it. You can check out my Facebook page for all the unique creations made at the workshop:
