Merry Christmas Doodlebug Shadowbox

This week at the Doodlebug blog we are sharing gift giving ideas.  I decided to create a little Merry Christmas Shadowbox using the Santa's Workshop line.  So bright and whimsical and perfect for creating a Christmas scene for my son's Pre-K teacher to display in her classroom.

Merry Christmas Shadowbox

To start, I added a piece of Bubblegum Petite Prints paper to the back of my shadowbox.  Then, I cut a large traiangle from a sheet of Teeny Toys Santa's Workshop Paper.  I draped my tree with lights, stickers from the Sweet Love Fancy Frills Sticker and Santa's Workship Fancy Frills sticker sheets.  To create my ornaments, I added some jewels and brads and a Snowflake Doodlepop for the star. 

And what Christmas scene would be complete without Santa, presents, and the reindeer?  I added some foam adhesive and popped these cardstock stickers on the edge of the frame. 

And the finishing touch is a giant paper bow on top created with two 2" x 12" strips of Candy Cane Lane paper.  The first strip, I notched at the ends and attached it to the top of the box.  With the second strip, I created a loop and attached it to the center of the first strip.  Then, I added a Poinsettia Doodle Pops sticker to the center.

This was such a fun project to create thanks to the variety of papers and embellishments in the Santa's Workshop collection.  I think Ethan's teacher will love it!
