Nutcracker Sweet Altered Art Box

Hello G45ers,

Welcome to another splendid day of crafts and smiles here at Graphic 45! We have some delightful treasures to share with you! Today is all about our enchanting new holiday collection Nutcracker Sweet. You are going to see the most divine creations from Alberto Juarez and Jim, The Gentleman Crafter. Today's crafts are full of so much joy and inspiration. We just know they're going to brighten your day. So lets get to it! First up is this gorgeous piece of home decor by Alberto Juarez. This is such a lovely idea and it looks fantastic! It combines jubilant holiday cheer with the elegant ballet theme in Nutcracker Sweet. This piece was made using the brand new Graphic 45 8x8 Matchbook Box! Alberto even created a downloadable pattern to show you how to create the beautiful ballet slippers! Here is what he had to say about this splendid work of art!

"I made this painting as decoration for Christmas or for a girl's room using as a base the matchbook 8x8 box, with the Nutcracker Sweet collection and making some dancers with the pattern attached. I printed and cut two pieces of each, one on each side, for both ballerina slippers." Alberto Juarez
