Christmas Collection Box


     This Christmas Collection Box was a kit from J&C Creations. It comes flat packed for you to decorate and assemble. The pieces are made from MDF which glue together very well, there are assembly instructions with it.
     I began by painting all the pieces white using acrylic paint. The front surround has also been sprayed with Crafters Companion Spray & Sparkle Iridescent which gives it a thin coat of glittery varnish, it doesn't show up very well in the photo but does when you see it in the wood, so to speak. If you are coming to Thetford show on Sunday then please come over and have a closer look.

      The little houses at the top have had their windows and door covered from behind with acetate coloured with Promarkers.
     In the main section there is a Christmas Tree made using the rosette dies from Tim Holtz, you can review a previous post on their construction here.
     There is also a turkey made using the same dies that can be reviewed here on a previous post.
        The present is a small box that once contained a car relay covered with some paper from a Christmas paper pad and tied up with curling ribbon. In the background there is some more paper with stockings hanging up along it.
     The snowman has been made using lots of bits and bobs that I will be telling you about on next weeks J&C Creations Sunday blog post, along with the details about the baubles and angel.

I would like to enter this box in the following challenges:
