I’ve been working on a holiday project

I need to take better pictures of this, but these will do for now.

The box is by EK Success Art Blanche Small Octagon Box. I covered it with paper from Fancy Pants’ Holly Jolly line.

I made a couple more Christmas trees (which I cut in half) that I intended to hang on the side of the box, but I decided that I just need any more going on.

This was one of those projects that I just had to make myself quit on. I just kept thinking of more and more to add to it. So who knows if this is the final product just yet.

And I should post a warning: Please don’t anybody try to make your own tiny garland at home. You will NOT enjoy spending a couple of hours of your life to make a garland chain thats less than a foot long. If you do however attempt such a feat, you will love the result!

The inspiration for the snowman himself came from Linda Albrecht. I wish I had just half of her creative mind.

I wet the paper for the snowman’s scarf, mittens and hat then crumpled it up to give them a softer feel.

I’m in love with this project! I have a lot of hours tied up in it, but enjoyed most of them (the scalloped tree and the garland was a HUGE pain). But now that I look at the pictures I’m thinking that maybe I do need to add something to the sides. Hmmmm…..
