I made a Christmas themed shrine for my partner in the 12 Days of Christmas swap.  I was so happy with the Halloween one that I wanted to tackle Christmas.  I spray painted the boxes and outside gold and then used different papers for the inside of each cubby


The shadowbox has a plastic cover that goes on the front with a lid, here it is with the lid on....


The back of the box has this great piece of scrapbook paper along with a dresden Santa

A close up of each section






Sorry for the dark photos, we actually had some rain in Phoenix on the day I was wrapping everything up!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Ahh! Here it is!! I am the proud new owner of this shadowbox, and I absolutely love it!  I am going to find a place to display it all year ( I was thinking I need to have a Christmas-themed space somewhere)!

Thank you, Lindy!!
