I put them aside for a while but recently when I started my Christmas crafting I remembered the boxes. I unpacked them and found that they had a seashell design on the back panel. Not very Christmasy, so that was going to have to go!
(I wish I had taken a photo of the "before", but I didn't so just imagine a peachy, seashell thing in the back of the shadow box!!!)
I popped out the back panel and then traced that shape on some chipboard-type stuff I had laying around. I don't buy chipboard. I keep the insert in packages to use later. I cut that shape out and then covered it with scrapbook paper.
Next I added some small jingle bells to the inside space of the shadow box. I then closed it up. I thought it could still use a little something extra so I cut some "frosted glass" vinyl and added the word "jingle" to the front of each box.
Now, you don't really notice "jingle" unless you're really looking for it, but I like it. It casts a shadow on the back of the shadow box, which is kinda cool.
|You can really see "jingle" in this one!|
|Difficult to see in this photo, but "jingle" is on the front glass.|
Hope you enjoyed todays quick project!
