Nichola brilliantly uses our Ivory Mixed Media Box in the amazing altered Christmas wonderland below. We just love this creation!

Mixed Media Boxes

"I love the Graphic 45 Mixed Media boxes. They are just the right size, the little window is sweet as can be, and the inside depth is practically perfect for little dioramas (which I love to make!) Twas the Night Before Christmas is a lot of fun with charming classic holiday graphics. I’ve added a slew of chunky white glitter on just about every surface but kept the edges clean to ensure that the box closure could still function.Considering our winter went on for an eternity last year, I thought that a winter theme (rather than all out Christmas) would give me an excuse to keep this piece on display for an extended time ;)" ~Nichola
