Christmas Memories Shadow Box

This is a fun way to keep track of how many Christmas Holidays you and your significant other have spent together. I just took a shadow box and decorated the inside using scrapbook paper and embellishments. Then, I placed a photograph of our first Christmas together in the middle of the box, raising the picture up a little with circle pop-up sticky tabs.
I added the date of our first Christmas as well.
I used hot glue to attach ribbon around the sides of the shadow box, complete with a bow and extra embellishments on top.
Finally, I added a bell for each Christmas thus far that we have spent together.
What an easy keepsake to have and display at Christmas each year! I have a bag of silver bells behind the back of the shadow box to make it easy to add each year! I am making one of these for my brother and his new fiancé as well-what a nice gift it will be!

Snowman Pails

How cute are these lil pails! These were so easy to make!
I just cut burlap for the scarf and glued on buttons.
I added cloth ribbon and cotton balls to complete the earmuffs.
I added buttons for eyes and decorative scrapbook paper for the nose. Now, what should I fill these with?

Christmas Wood Blocks

The Holiday Season is right around the corner! I completed these wood blocks today to give as gifts! My husband cut and sanded the wood for me-a big thank you to him! I painted the wood and added decorative paper and other embellishments to complete these lil projects! What do you think?
