Christmas Shadow Box Frame, Hello December. Stampin' Up!

Make this Shadow Box for your Christmas Home Decor using an Ikea Shadow Box Frame.

This project is made using the Hello December 2015 Project Life Accessory Pack # 139654. 
The only additional supplies you will need are some adhesives and whichever papers you choose for the backing sheets.
I have used a sheet of 12" x 12" DSP from the Home For Christmas paper (reverse of the Christmas Tree pattern) and a sheet of Lost Lagoon 12" x 12".
The Shadow box Frame is Ribba, size 50 x 50 cm (19 3/4" x 19 3/4"), available from Ikea.

The circles for the fluttering banner are punched out using the 3/4", 1", and 1 1/4" circle punches, then attached to the fine gold thread included in the kit.
The patterned circles in the kit are popped up on double dimensionals after winding the fine gold gold thread directly onto the sticky reverse side of the stickers....easy!
The vellum circle stickers are adhered straight to the page so they will give a translucent effect.
The circle banner was attached to the back of the frame using sticky tape.
This project was quick to put together and looks sensational in real life. The photos don't really do it justice. The sparkle catches the light and the banner casts a pretty shadow over the glass frame, inviting the viewer in for a closer look.
