Jingle Bell Frame

As we have entered the last quaterof the year I like to start preparing for Christmas, including handmade decorations.
This is my latest decoration, a 3d box frame, but it started off as.....

...a fairly plain frame from poundland.
I removed the back & the front leaving the insert. To this I attached a cardboard frame I'd covered in blue paper to create a night time scene. & then a back piece covered in the same paper. The back piece also works as a stand when the frames put back together.
From here I could add the rest of the scene. I stuck peel off a peel off Santa scene onto card, coloured it in & layered them up. on the outer card I added peel off letters to spell "jingle bells". I finished off by putting sleigh bells loose into the frame before attaching the glass & putting it all back together.
This can now stand on my mantelpiece when I put my Christmas decorations up.


  1. Another clever creation K. I wouldn't have thought of creating a 3d frame from a 2d one. The jingling bells is a great idea too. x
