My latest projects were for a Christmas swap on the Cricut message board. We had to make a bunch of different items following some directives. I really enjoyed making all of these and tried to do something different for each. Let me start with my snowflakes. They were made using clock hands and a small circle token. Super easy!!!
I decide to do a shadowbox. The theme for this was snowman. I had to really think about it because my partner lives in Florida and I know they don't have snowmen there. So I decide to go with "things that people do in winter." I had such a great time figuring out what I wanted to do for each little box. First I covered all the boxes with paper and tied them together with tissue tape. (I learned this at a Tim Holtz class I went to). Starting at the top left. I added skis, a sled and ice skates. Next is a tree and a deer(winter to lots of people) Top right is a glass dome filled with Aruba shells and sand( for her home state of Florida). Next is a basket filled with greens and berries next to a bottle of snow. Of course I had to have a snowman!!! The box to the right is games. who doesn't play games in the winter. I added dice, domino, puzzle piece, monopoly house and bingo things(10-5 for her birthday) Bottom left is for Christmas with a wreath, bulb and decorations. Center box has 2 red birds on tree branches. (Reminds me of winter) The last box is for New Years with a bottle and a fancy drink!!!!! I added feet and a few snowflakes and then added a small amount of spray snow to finish it off.
