National Garlands Vintage Inspired Shadow Box ~ Part 1 TupeloDesignsLLC

 Good morning friends.  I'm popping in today with a project I made using some fabulous products found in the TupeloDesignsLLC store.
Tim Holtz is a huge name in the crafting industry and he has an amazing line of vintage style products.

When I saw these Vingnette Box Tops come in the store, I knew I just had to have them.

  In fact, I bought several packages of them because I loved them so much and I have vintage loving friends that would enjoy getting one of these filled boxes for Christmas.
The box tops are made to fit over the wooden vignette trays which I covered using paper from Simple Stories Simple Vintage Christmas.  

The papers in this pack are so jolly and perfectly vintage!  Aleen's Always Ready Turbo Tacky Glue worked perfectly for adhering all the paper elements on this project.  It dries clear and has a super strong adhesion but because it's a liquid glue, it gives you time to move your paper elements into just the right position.

I also added some vintage images from Tim Holtz Christmas Ephemera

 This pack of vintage ephemera is filled with oodles and oodles of images, advertisements and holiday icons.  Enough for dozens of Christmas projects.

The wooden toy soldier is an ornament that I had in my vast collection of Christmas ornaments and the white bottle brush tree is from Tim Holtz Idea-ology Tree Lot.

Would you like to win one of these?  Leave a comment on one or all three of my posts for "Vintage Inspired Shadow Box".  Stay tuned next Thursday for part 2 of my Vintage Inspired Shadow Box posts.  ETA:  Dan, the owner of TupeloDesignsLLC is generously adding a few surprise items to this giveaway.  Thanks so much Dan!
