I'm so excited to be a part of this awesome blog hop! I know I have not posted lately. I have been super busy with school, and I lost me creative mojo for a while. No worries though...I have lots of ideas running around in my head, so check back soon. Onto my project.
The idea for this project came from a challenge on the Cricut Circle message board to create a project for the winter holiday you celebrate without using traditional icons for that holiday. I celebrate Christmas, so I could not use a Christmas tree or Santa...anything like that. One of my favorite books to read at Christmas time is The Polar Express, which is where this idea came from. You can only hear the bell if you believe in Santa.
Here's how I did it. I cut my cardstock to fit the embossing folder, making sure all the pieces covered the back of the shadow box. I embossed the cardstock and then ran some ink over it so the snowflakes would show up. I sprayed some fake snow on the glass from the inside. I would recommend you follow the directions on the can and practice before you do it on the glass. I tied my ribbon to the bell and taped it to the top of the box. Lastly, I used my gypsy to weld the word "believe" and used my cricut to cut it and put it on the glass. Easy peasy. Let me know what you think!!!
