The Magic of Christmas

Here is a little something I have made......I have entitled it the Magic of Christmas. I have wanted to create something like this for ages, I keep seeing things in magazines and on blogs and I really wanted to get a configurations box. Well I treated myself to a small one and here is a little box of Christmas joy that I created.

I started by painting the main box in a light green colour and then using flitter glu and gilding flakes around the edge. I got some Tim Holtz trees as well and I dyed this one green, I think this on was part distress stain and part Dylusions and then I added some glitter to the tree and the tiny piece of tinsel. I put cotton wool in one of the tiny bottles and sprinkled glitter on that as well, and I put little gold starts in the other bottle. I painted the two smaller boxes with gold gloss paint that I just got yesterday and already love, so it may now be used on everything hehe! Then I positioned the boxes in the larger box and stuck down the tree and then I added loads of glitters and stars and glitter glue. I also painted some glitter paint around the edge. I then found the star border that I had cut our on the cricut last year and never used, I painted that with glitter paint as well and added a few more stars and some glitter. Basically it was an excuse for me to cover everything in glitter:)
