Altered Art/ Paper Crafting, Just for Fun!, Scrapbook Inspiration Gallery!

We love making these interesting little curiosities. Each one is so different and interesting to look at!

Christmas Curiosity

Starting with a dollar store, wooden, divided box and a gathering of Christmas knick knacks a direction was set for this project. Each 2×2 inch square is it’s own little display of holiday fun. The original box was unfinished, so a quick coat of black craft paint gives this piece a vintage look as well. Here are some close up shots of the showcases. We hope this project gives you some great ideas.

The top of the box has an assortment of favorite things, nicely displayed, including an old, mini scooter.

This project idea will work wonderfully for any holiday or occasion. Imagine it in a Halloween or Eatser motiff!
