I'd love to leave my Christmas decorations up all year, I never get tired of Christmas. I'm not an early Christmas shopper, and don't like stores decorated for Christmas before Halloween, but always have Christmas on my mind. Today Elizabeth posted a fabulous Christmas themed shadow box tutorial, and this reminded me of a shadow box gift I made for a co-worker last year and thought I'd share my idea with you.
I love receiving the family photo type of Christmas cards and hate to throw them out. Last year I ran across photo cards that I had received the previous year and thought ... hummm I bet these would make a cute shadow box. So I bought a small shadow box from Michael's, some elements, and paper, and put this little gift together for one of my co-workers, she was thrilled.
The photo card I received was a collage; I cut the pics out, then embellished
(please excuse the weird edit)
Today I'm having a "barn raising" for someone special ... although I doubt she believes me (I've been telling her it was coming for months) ... I promise it's really really coming :) !!!
As always, thanks for stopping by, E
