Off the Page Christmas House

What could be cuter than a Santa Chipboard Shadow Box
House complete with a little pack ofcards for play such as snap or memory.
The little house is a Scrapware Shadow box house available in the shop here.I painted the house pieces with white gesso then glued it together with Helmar Quick Dry Adhesive glue.
To make it easy I also used some tape to hold the pieces together while the glue set.
Papers uses were Pink Paislee Father Christmas .
I used the 6 x 6 paper pad which is really handy for this type of project.
To make the front I measured the border around the house and cut the centre from the PP Special Delivery paper including fussy cutting around the Santa Sleigh. The sleight needs to sit on the bottom right of the front of the house.

The centre piece is the 6 x 6 Christmas Airmail and my roof is a combination of the reverse sides of the Special Delivery and Santa Sleigh. (stripes and dots).

The side of the house was decorated withPink Paislee Artisan Tape which was a perfect fit.
I cut up the PP Christmas postcards to make the cards and laminated them and tied them up with some red Jute Cord. I did need the whole two sheets of this to make 24 cards.
The christmas message is also from the PP Christmas Punchouts.To give the 3D affect I used Scrap Dots which is a Helmar 3D adhesive (no messing around with sticky tape anymore). I just love this product. I don't know how many pairs of scissors I have gunked up with 3D tape. This is one product I will be continuing to keep in my stash of adhesives.
Now my tiny manilla folder was decorated with the '25 Days' cut from the corner of the Christmas Air Mail. The lil' manilla folder is available from the Journalling Spot section of the store. Inside I have written a personal christmas message. The Kaisercraft Sparklets added a touch of bling to my roof.
Last but not least my metal Ho Ho Ho
and the christmas bells were from our christmas decoration stash.
