I am so excited to share my project for the hop today. I've created a Tim Holtz Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium Printer's Tray. I just love Graphic 45 and love altering projects with it. My problem is I never want to cut it. But once I start it is so much fun.
Here is the finished product.
Here is what the tray looks like when you buy it. On the back it shows you several ways to configure it and then you can go from there. I started by putting the two larger boxes together where I wanted the Santa's Workshop room to go and then went from there.
For this project I used the 8 x 8 stack of Christmas Emporium and a few single sheets of paper.
I also used chipboard pieces from the two Christmas Emporium Graphic 45 sets.
Small Christmas Embellishments
Tim Holtz Ink
Other embellishments from stash
