Something a little on the festive side

Warm Greetings Friends

Today I have a little festive project share combining the Kaiser December 25th Collection (available from ANNA'S CRAFT CUPBOARD) and some awesome TWIDDLEYBITZ Chipboard.


So I started with the idea of creating a little Christmas Scene within a Twiddleybitz Wave Shadow Box.

Before Transformation the box looks like this

The instructions provided make the construction of the box a relatively easy process.

First, I pre-assembled all the shadow box components as I find it easier to know which bits are going to be on the inside - from past experience these sometimes can be a bit tricky to cover, this of course depends on the type of project you are constructing.  

The inside pieces were then covered with patterned papers -  I have used Kaiser December 25th Patterned Papers : P717 Festive & P716 Hope (Reverse)

The Outside of the box was then covered with December 25th Patterned Papers: P717 Festive & P715 Faith.


Twiddleybitz Holly Leaves  have been layered and attached across the bottom front of the box. These were first inked and then given a sprinkling of Walnut Ink Crystals before attaching.  
Punched fir leaves have also been added - these were layered amongst the holly leaves.
  
 Behind the houses,  a hedge effect was created from the P717 Festive (Holly Side) Patterned Paper.  To create an element of depth, this was attached with foam tape.

The Twiddleybitz Miniature Houses were covered with patterned papers from the December 25th Paper Pad.  The doors and windows on the house are the Twiddleybitz  Tweeny Doors/Windows - they go perfectly with the little 3D houses.  The houses were further embellished with December 25th Sticker elements and punched fir leaves.

A Rose Red 'Beautiful' MHC Bloom (available also from Anna's) adds a splash of colour.

A Twiddleybitz Triple Lamp Post shines some festive light on the little village.


Across the top of the shadow box,  Twiddleybitz Santa and his reindeer can be seen flying to reach their destination and a jovial Twiddleybitz HO HO HO adds the final festive touch.
