NATIVITY FRAME

NATIVITY FRAME

Hello Everyone,
I have been busy making projects for the upcoming Christmas Season and I wanted to do some frames to make for gifts and to also to present to my classes so they could make them for gifts or Christmas home decorations.
This is a 4 x 4 inch shadowbox frame.  The inside figures are attached to strips of card stock that are attached to the sides of the frame.  Each of the figures had to be aligned just right so that all the figures could be seen when looking at the frame. I used the PEACEFUL NATIVITY stamp set and the coordinating NATIVITY DIES.  I used spanish moss and added it to the roof of the manger with hot glue.  I also added a 12 light string of fairy lights (from the dollar store) and attached them to the bottom of the frame to light up the background figures and the backdrop.  I intend to add some artificial snow to cover the bottom inside of the frame.  I hot glued the battery pack to the back of the frame, making sure that the access to the battery could be reached.  Please feel free to leave a comment if you like this project.

GNOME FOR CHRISTMAS

GNOME FOR CHRISTMAS LIGHTED FRAME

I wanted to have a project for my class to do so they could have something to give as a gift or to use as a Christmas home decoration in their own homes.  And this is what I came up with...GNOME FOR CHRISTMAS.
This is a 4 x 4 inch shadow box frame that I put together using the GNOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS stamp set.  There are three layers in the frame that the figures are attached to and those bands of card stock are glued to the sides of the frame.  I added the candy cane and striped mint from SWEETEST BORDERS DIES set.  I also added a 12 light, battery operated fairy light to the bottom and side of the frame.  I attached the battery pack to the outside of the frame, keeping in mind that the battery changing side should be on the outside.  I intend on adding artificial snow to the bottom of the frame to keep the light cord covered.  Please comment if you like this frame project.
