Holiday Shadow Box

With Christmas in mind, the Unrulies are to show you ideas for using boxes.

I had hoarded a Prima flower box, the kind that has a draw that slides out.  I took the acetate off the front and made a shadow box with a hidden second scene.  I also finally used some hoarded gorgeous Cozy Christmas designer paper from The Scrap Cake.  My digital images of a vintage girl and snowman are from Heather Hudson's My Artistic Adventures Etsy shop.

I made this for my little granddaughter who loves pink.

All of the details about this box and lots more photos of it can be found in the article I wrote for Unruly PaperArts blogozine, posted on December 15 HERE.
