Teeny Weeny Christmas

This set is the first in a new series called "Teeny Weeny Scenery".  A couple of months ago I was trying to create a winter scenery to fit the size of my medium cling set which measures about 2-1/2" x 3-1/2".  It doesn't seem very large, but it was very difficult to fill in that much scenery.  After awhile I scrapped the idea, but it kept coming back to me.  Maybe if I tried doing it on a smaller scale...

I tried to add in as many layers as I could to give this card dimension.  I used foam dots to pop up the snow, the trees and the snowman.  On the pink frame, I popped up the holly.  To make the window for the card, I sandwiched some glitter between 2 pieces of acetate (sealed with double stick tape) and taped behind the open window to look like snow:

Mount the frame onto the scenery with more pop dots.  To make the card base, I cut a 3-3/4" x 7-1/2" piece of card stock (scored at 1-1/2" and 3-3/4").  Glue the bottom half of the scenery to the bottom half of the card cover (up to the fold line).  On the inside of the card, stamp a greeting and pop up another image to hold the easel.

Here's another version of the card:

Keeping the window round makes it look more like a snow globe:

Paradise in a Box

While I still had my sand out from my last project...thought I'd make a beach scene in a box.  Perfect to send to family and friends who are away and may be missing the island life...

Click here for the cover pattern...cut 2, one for the top and one for the bottom.  Put double stick tape on all four tabs of each piece (see below).  Cut a 4-1/2" x 6-3/4" piece of acetate.  Score at 1", 2", 4-1/4" and 5-1/4".  Fold at each scored line and tape edges together at back "seam".  The trickiest part of this project is keeping the measurement of the back panel at 2-1/4" wide when you tape the ends together.  Make your scene on a piece that will fit on back wall of acetate box.  I tried to pop up many layers to get more dimension.

Place the acetate box in one of the cover pieces.  Adhere the side tabs first, as shown below:

Then adhere the other two tabs.   Fill with sand, place your scene along back wall and tape the top cover on in the same way as the bottom.
