Framed Collage

Last night I attended a fabulous Christmas Party with fellow demonstrators.  This is what I took for the gift exchange.

I started with a frame designed for a shadow box, though you could use any frame, just leave the glass out.  I started by cutting squares of Silver Glimmer Paper to fill my space then started cutting dozens of elements  from Whisper White, Shimmery White and Silver Metallic Paper.

Here is the project without the glass.  I knew I wanted the center image to be the sheet music from the This Christmas Designer Series Paper so I worked out from there.

So while the gift was fun to make it was supposed to be "all about the wrapping".  Here is the picture of the wrapping.  I only snapped this 1 picture  -- what was I thinking?

I made a box – Real Red base, Whisper White top.  I used some Candy Cane Lane Washi tape for the ribbon then made some poinsettias with the Festive Flower Builder Punch.  Added some leaves and pinecones cut using the Pretty Pines Thinlits.  Tucked in some strings of Whisper White Mini PomPoms.  It's hard to tell from the photo but the word "merry" (cut from Christmas Greetings Thinlits) was mounted onto a strip of window sheet so it floats above the flowers.  Finished the box off with Rhinestones scattered over it.

It was such fun to create this.  I hope I have inspired you to try your own framed art and packing!  I'd love to be your demonstrator.  Order all these supplies from my online store.  Be sure to use the November Host Code XBXTGGM2 when placing your order.  If your order is $150 don't use the code – you will automatically qualify for hostess benefits.
