Looking for handmade gift to make this season? Let’s explore shadowboxes and letter block tray ideas with a Christmas vibe. Our crew shows off some very cool ways to use trays you might already have, vintage trays you have picked up along the way or grab one of the 7gypsies trays and give a gift that will bring smiles. Let’s begin with crew member Cherry Nelson with the beautiful shadow box filled with wonderful little details.
If you have a box with lot of nooks and crannies, don’t worry about it, fill each space with wonderful little things.
Canvas Corp: Tags – Krafty Christmas
Canvas Corp –12×12 Paper Farmhouse Christmas Tags on Ivory
Canvas Corp – Red Patchwork on white
Canvas Corp – Red and Green Diamond on white
7gypsies metal keys black
Canvas Corp – Mini Clothespins Lime Green
Canvas Corp – Holiday Door Tags
Fill in from the back forward giving wonderful dimension to your shadow box and don’t forget you can use the top if items don’t fit, not worry just layer them on top of each other and you will love the look just as Cherry is showing here. If you don’t like the color of your shadowbox paint it a nice white, cream or black.

Next Angelique shows us us how to take one sweet little photo and build a shadow box around it. If you don’t have room for a 4×6 or 5×7, consider cutting it into pieces and placing each one in the squares around it to make a unique photo image and then fill in the other spaces.
