 Are you ready to start thinking about Christmas decorations or maybe a fun gift idea. It is never to early to get started...I created a dimensional fun cabinet for the holidays using Composition Box - 25 and Graphic 45 Nutcracker Sweet Designer Paper. 

Begin by first putting the Composition Box - 25 together. Paint with black paint. Dry completely.

Apply a generous coat of Crackle Paint to all pieces of the Composition Box - 25. Dry.

 Paint the inside and boxes of Composition Box - 25 with paint. Dry. Add pattern paper to sides of Composition Box - 25.

Emboss Deco Frame 6 Inch Set with embossing powder and Boss Gloss. Cut bottom piece off; it will be used for one of the boxes.

Add designer paper behind Deco Frame 6 Inch Set. Add to back of Composition Box - 25.

Emboss Snowflake Shape Set with embossing powder and Boss Gloss. Add to sides of Composition Box - 25 along with brads and circle punched pieces from the designer paper.

Add fussy cut images from designer paper, add to sides with pop dots.

Repeat again for the other side of Composition Box - 25.

Add legs to Composition Box - 25 .

Decorate each of the small boxes that come with the Composition Box - 25 using metals and miniatures along with small images from the designer paper. Add to inside of box.

Add bottom part of prepared Deco Frame 6 Inch Set that you cut off to box.

Fussy cut image from designer paper. Add to inside of box along with floral pieces and miniature. Add to inside of box.

Add a few more layers of images that has been fussy cut from the designer paper to the top of Composition Box - 25.

Along with a fun banner that is floating from the top and prepared Snowflakes.
