Graphic 45 Newsletter Project Mixed Media Box With Ornaments Tutorial

Standard

Well hey there Paper Peeps! Did you get a  chance to check out the Newsletter from Graphic 45? The Teamies and I are sharing some fabulous projects using the new mixed media boxes from the Graphic 45 Staples.mixed media box 1I created a shadow box on the inside of the lid to create this tiny winter scene. Lot’s of extra room to add a bottle brush tree.

mixed media box 4You can tell from this angle how much extra space it adds. I dressed up the shadow box section with a bit of the Twelve Days of Christmas Papers, and some tinsel trim.

mixed media box 2On the outside of the box I added another tree and decorated it with several of the banner shapes, some trimmed doves, painted bells and flowers and pretty Gingham Ribbon.

mixed media box 3There was plenty of room here to add a pretty metal element, some of the G45 diecut flowers and a red rose.

Tucked away inside the box is a special surprise….I’ve created matching ornaments with The Twelve Days of Christmas papers.

  1. Ginny, this is just so beautiful! You totally made it look like there’s a mirror inside the box reflecting your pretty bottle brush tree! So clever! The ornaments inside will be beautiful on the tree. You are so clever!
