Snowflakes Falling Shadow Box
by Jodi Wilton

I absolutely loved using the Shadow Box to create some Christmas Decor! I love the two little reindeers, and knew they would be the focal point of my project! By added some snowflakes on white cardstock it creates a subtle snowy background. I added snowflakes around the frame for some extra snowflake fun.

Haunted House Shadow Box 
by Monique Liedtke

I never created a real shadow box before, not because I didn’t want to, but because I thought I couldn’t do it. I didn’t want to “ruin” the shadow box and so I never tried. But now I’m hooked! I just love how this 3D Haunted House turned out! To create this I used a Silhouette cut file (by Marji Roy) and the Doodlebug Halloween collection “Halloween Parade”. Although we don’t celebrate Halloween here in The Netherlands I love to decorate our house just a little bit and this shadow box is just what it needed!

Home for the Holidays: Reindeer Food, Gift Box + Door Hanger

Today we are excited to share a variety of Home for the Holidays projects from our Design Team. From darling door decor with a sweet door hanger, to a simple gift box you can create yourself and a fun reindeer food holder.

We hope something will be worth sharing with your friends (because remember you could win this collection if you share). We'd love to know which Home for the Holidays product you're excited to play with, visit our website to see and then leave a comment on the blog today.

Magical Reindeer Food Holder
by Tya Smith

I just love this line! It has all the classic colors of Christmas as well as some fun whimsical shapes to use! When I saw the cute little reindeer Doodle Pops I knew I had to use them on a fun treat holder.

Along with new PJ's from the elves, and Milk and Cookies for Santa - one of my children's favorite Christmas Eve traditions is leaving this "Magical Reindeer Food" out for Rudolph and friends. There are lots of different recipes out there to make this but mine is simply some oatmeal and some green and red cookie sprinkles (better for the birds who eat all the reindeer's "leftovers" ) :)  Sprinkle a little bit on your lawn and if your brave - up on your roof to guide Santa's sleigh to your home!

I used a box that I found on this site and decorated the outside and inside of the box with some of the many fun and festive prints that come in the collection. I used a glassine bag to hold the actual food and then placed that bag in the holder. Add a big green paper bow from the Mini Bows craft kit. Add a fun tag and the tree and reindeer Doodlepops - and you have a festive little bag to give to your kiddos to add to the holiday fun!
