I have had this vintage box in my stash for ages just waiting for the inspiration.  I loved the pink and turquoise "sputniks" and that it reminded me of our home in the late 50s/early 60s.  Until mom switched to "Early American" LOL

I did a bit of repair and strengthening with cardstock and double sided tape to the inside top frame first.  It then got a couple of coats of sepia toned decoupage finish.  I covered the bottom with a sheet of music themed sparkly paper.  Pink, turquoise and platinum Stickles highlight the design and I used a chunky turquoise gliter to outline the inner frame.

The image is from Digital Collage Sheets.  I used pink mica flakes, creamy tulle and lace trims, turquoise seam binding ribbon, a vintage ornament and bits to create the tag.

I first used white bottle brush trees but the darker coloured ones ground the scene.  I used dabs of Glossy Accents to adhere a sprinkling of Diamond Dust on the trees.  A bit of cotton batting makes a snowy gound and fills the bottom.


I adore comments! Thank you so much!
