Retro and Victorian Vintage Shadowboxes

A few more holiday boxes today. They're just such a pleasure to make! Not too difficult and they're pretty as can be.

There are a number of shadowbox size options available at AlphaStamps. I've made three different sizes here from 2" to 3.5" wide. The bases have been paired with lids with the openings trimmed with Larger Green Leaf Garland*, and Mini Holly Leaf Garland.

I've made both retro and victorian vintage feel pieces here. I think this intimate Santa image from the Santa's Toys Collage Sheet is just perfect for inside the box. It almost makes the interior look illuminated.

You can just make out the interior background of the box here. I kept things super simple and just painted the inside white and added... surprise surprise... glittahhh!

The two smaller boxes I've kept very similar, with just subtle differences. The papers from the Nostalgia 6x6 Paper Pad are the same colour but have a different pattern. The cutout framed lids are different shapes. But they match as a pair.

Both of these cuties are from the Victorian Angels Collage Sheet

Total aside here... I LOVE tartan patterned things at Christmas. I know this technically a check, but it has a very tartan feel.

ANYWAY!  Below you will find ALL THE BITS used for creating these cute boxy things. Or, you can find everything in one place HERE.
