Tis the Season

There is just something magical about this time of year. Perhaps its the youthful playfulness that fills the heart and brings you back to younger days. For me, ...I remember the days of endless Christmas music filling the house, and the white and happy lights of the Christmas tree, and especially holding the warm mug of hot cocoa after a cold wet day of playing in the snow. Such happy memories, they come back to me, like precious gifts.

"Tis the Season to be Jolly" 

First I added card stock to the inside and outside of the Hutch shrine. I then added a bead of glue along the inside and added glitter.

I then added multiple layers of glitter to the trees and after I put them in their notches,I covered the bottom of the trees in glue and thick glitter that looked like snow. 

I cut out a vintage image from collage sheet #DP239 and added some glitter detail

I then added Silver Dresden to the outside of the box 

and snowflake embellishments along with a Black Chipboard sticker.
