12 Days of Christmas at Doodlebug - Day 1 with Sherry

Christmas Shadow Box by Sherry Cartwright 


In October, I made a Halloween shadowbox and it sparked an idea ---- a shadowbox for each holiday.  I can see this working out beautifully because using Doodlebug Design themed collections simplifies any project.

This little shadowbox, as with any other project, will add just a bit of excitement and creativity to your holiday decor.

Tips for making your shadowbox:
  • Creativity and patience. It takes some creative movement of the parts and pieces to make this shadowbox more dimensional. Simply adhere things further away first and build your scene in layers. Patience is needed to see each space come to life as you create.
  • Use a mix of papers, die cuts and stickers.  
  • Embellish with pearls and jewels to add more dimension.
  • Add some sugar coating [glitter] to make your project sparkle and shine.
Here, I used the north pole collection, with the addition of the santa sticker from santa's workshop, mini pearls, jewels, snowflake mini doodle-pops, doodle twine, fancy frills stickers and sugar coating.

Come on over to my blog to see get a closer look at each box.
