Trimming The Town Christmas decoration – designed by Michelle Last

Hello everyone.

I hope you are well. Today I’ve got another project from the #pinkiesretreat2020 that was designed by Michelle Last. As part of the huge variety of supplies that Michelle sent us for the virtual retreat last month we got a fillable Christmas decoration.

Michelle then gave us various ideas for filling it with a little box and houses cut out of the Trimming The Town designer series paper and then some ‘snow’. Here’s my interpretation….

This is the side view where you can see that the houses are attached to the front and back of a little box…

When you make your box you close the tabs at the top but you fold the bottom tabs outwards so that you can use them to attach your creation to the bottom of the cloche decoration. I also added some glue to the top of the tabs once I’d attached them to the base so that the snow would stick and camouflage them.

I chose to use Real Red card for my box as that matched the houses I cut from the DSP. I also used some other bits of DSP to cover the top parts of the box to tie in with the tops of my houses. You’ll see from the above photo that I added a second little house to the front with Stamping’ Dimensionals, along with a tree and the sentiment; all from the DSP.

Here’s the view of the other side…

The little wreath is cut from the DSP with a die from the Home Together dies and I used a punch to cut a hole in the centre.

The final touch was to add a mini jingle bell to the decoration along with some of the beautiful red ribbon from the Playful Pets trim combo pack.

I’ve gifted this one to a friend but ordered more of the decorations online so I can make some for my tree too!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this project. I’ve listed the Stampin’ Up! products used below and you can use any of the links to visit my online shop to purchase them.

Happy crafting,
