Graphic 45 Christmas Carol Pop Up Shadow Box

Hey, all! I have a super fun project to share with you all today! It'll be Christmas in no time and I am really bad at preparing, so I am really excited that I made this awesome (if I do say so myself) decor piece.
I love all of Graphic 45’s Christmas collections and this new one is no exception! I wanted to make a fun home d├ęcor project to display and enjoy throughout the holiday season and I wanted it to be dimensional. But being practical, I thought about how I would store it for the other 11 months out of the year. The idea came upon me when I spied one of my kids pop-up books- to create a 3D scene inside a shadow box that, once opened, images would pop-up and out and then tuck back in and look like a book when it was time to get stored, so I grabbed a Graphic 45 Book Box and the Christmas Carol papers and started fussy cutting my favorite images and gluing them down. Other than the ribbon and metal, all the decorations are from the paper! That’s the beauty of Graphic 45- the paper alone can make the most gorgeous and fun creations!
