Jolly Ole' Elf Vintage Inspired Shadow Box ~ Part 2 TupeloDesignLLC

Hello friends.  I'm back with Part 2 of the vintage inspired vignette boxes I've been making using products from TupeloDesignsLLC.
You can find my first post here.  

Today's project is all about the Elf on the Shelf.  I remember my grandmother having some of these cute little knee hugger elves hanging on her Christmas tree.  Oh how I wish I had those to hang on my tree as I have such a fond memory of taking them off the tree and playing with them when I was a little girl.  But I digress...

For today's project, I used a vintage box that I had on hand and covered it in papers from Simple Stories Simple Vintage Christmas using Aleene's Always Ready Turbo Tacky Glue.  I added some nostalgic holiday elements from Tim Holtz Idea-ology Christmas Ephemera Pack.
To the wreath, I added a few dots of cranberry colored Stickles for added texture.

I filled the box with this vintage knee-hugger elf I found at Goodwill and a bottle brush tree from Tim Holtz Idea-ology Tree Lot,  I covered a battery operated tea light with peppermint candy washi-tape to light up the scene.  I used scrabble tiles to spell out the word "Elf".

 Would you like to win one of these?  Leave a comment on one or all three of my posts for "Vintage Inspired Shadow Box".  You can find the link to the first post at the top of this post.  Stay tuned next Thursday for part 3 of my Vintage Inspired Shadow Box posts.
