Snowman Box Frames

Just a quick catch up today, as you know I made the first of these snowmen box frames as part of a Hunkydory review using a frame I found with Marc in the Portobello Road branch of Poundland.  It was only when I started to use the glass fronted frame that I began to realise their potential, and I knew then that I wanted use the idea as my Christmas "card"/fairing gift for family and friends this year, but it all relied on my finding more of the frames ...........  and we all know the golden rule of Poundshop shopping, you've got to get it there and then when you see it as you might never see them again!  As it was, when Marc and I visited a retail park in Malvern with very good and large Poundland a little while later they had them and I cleared the shelves ..... and then bought a few more in Wolverhampton recently, just in case!!!!!

I was then able to get really cracking, even managing to make a few spare to give as last minute gifts or even, I am not sure, to sell  ...... and this in June ....... I have never been so organised!
The only thing I have added extra was to cover the backs of the frames with Christmas papers where the patterns are not of a proportion that I would use on my cards. They also make the frame look "properly" finished off.  When I am ready to start posting them out I will add a mat and layered label to the back with my Christmas wishes and the year it was given. What can I say? Christmas is well and truly on the way to being done and dusted!
