Shadow Box

I saw this on Pinterest and loved it!  I thought I should try to make something similar.

First stop, Target, for a shadow box.  Then I hit Joann's and picked up the jingle bells.  The rest I had at home.

I cut a piece of 12 x 12 holiday card stock for the back and adhered that to the back of the shadow box.
Next I tied some of the bells to twine and bundled that together and adhered the twine to the back of the shadow box.

Time to add the small red ornaments and dump some bells in.

The final step was to use Cricut Craft Room to layout some text and cut that in vinyl.

Once the vinyl was cut I put the vinyl on the outside of the glass.  Wrap a ribbon around the frame, tie a bow, and you are DONE!

I have to be honest...I was going to give this as a gift, but I am going to keep it!  I will pick up some more shadow boxes and make some more, but probably not until next year!

What fun and musical, too! Great project!

Thanks, Carolyn! I'd like to find some smaller shadow boxes to make these for gifts (for next year!!!). My kids like to tilt the shadow box to redistribute the bells. :-)
