The Decoration

Christmas Box, made from a Laughing Cow cheese portion box (same as baby circle mini on October post) Whole box painted with red DecoArt acrylic & covered in Anita's 3D gloss.


These are circles of patterned paper from the leftovers of a Pebble Incs. Holiday ScrapbooKit. (Do you recognise it, Rachel (Taniwha). She used this kit in Scrapbook Inspirations, Ready Steady Scrap Challenge & kindly sent me the leftovers along with the CherryArte on My Blog layout...
Each circle has been decorated with xmas images & funky foam Xmas shapes. I have used Pink & Purple, Anita's 3D glossy dimensional paint. I have painted pink blossoms (from the picture of the pots in an earlier post) red & put them together with brads & covered them in Anita's 3D clear gloss. The Xmas tree image has had metallic & Xmas coloured brads put on it to act as baubles. I thoroughly enjoyed making this & feel very festive now that I have.
I will get it out each year & then fold it away until the next. Thing is I have two sides to the fireplace so I might have to make a second!!!!!

That's just so cute. And you def need another one for the other side or you'd be all unbalanced, wouldn't you ;-)

What a great idea Paula. I think I might have to have a go at this - my dd Rachel will no doubt eat all the cheeses too!
