Let it Snow Trinket Tin

The little Ideaology Christmas Trinket Tins are so little and sweet and allow for tiny miniature scenes to play out. So I present to you two little snowy scenes
First, I opened the tin and set it on it's side so it is wide horizontally. to keep it open I attached some dimensional adhesive under the lid so it would sit flat on top of the tin and not flip closed. Then I spread some Distress Grit Paste on the top and adhere a Quote Chip. Once it was secure I adhered two Snowflake Adornments and then added more Grit Paste to the top of the Quote Chip and on the snowflakes.
I took one of the Icicles and trimmed the corners to fit the shape of the tin. Then I spread some Glossy Accents on it and dusted it with Distress Rock Candy Glitter. Once that was Dry I adhered it to the tin with Glossy Accents and held it there until it dried.
The first little scene is a snowball fight in the making. I covered the inside of the tin with the Red Snowflake paper from the Christmas Paper Stash. Then went around the inside of the tin with the Ideaology Black polka dot Christmas Design Tape. The back area has a tree, a snow poster, and a 25 ticket all from the Christmas Snippets.
I spread more Grit Paste along the bottom of the lid and dusted it with Distress Glitter. Cut one of the Wood Slices in half and attach that at the bottom of the tree and add more Grit Paste. I rolled some Baubles in Distress Collage Medium and then Rock Candy Distress Glitter to make snowballs.
The next step was to color some of the tiniest of the Christmas Paper Dolls and attach them around in the snow. I mostly just put a little Collage Medium on their feet and stuck them in the snow. The one little kid on the wood slice is attached to the long icicle.
For the second scene I covered the back and sides of the box with the black greenery paper. I covered the front edge of the tin with the red plaid Christmas Design Tape. Again I spread Grit paste over the bottom and dusted it with glitter.
The I added a few piece of the smaller Icicle that I had glittered previously. I put two small pieces on each corner and a tiny bit of the left over in the center. Then to cover the parts without icicles, I attached the red Icicles for decorating strio with Collage Medium.
I used the Birch die cut and cut it out of Distress Watercolor Paper so it was a nice, this white paper. I stamped over it with the Birch background stamp from Stampers Anonymous in Ground Espresso Archival. I did cut the piece to fin in the tin, but then cut it in half and attached on piece barely popped up from the back. The piece on the right is popped up quite a bit to add some dimension.
I sprayed one small and two mini Woodland Trees with Peeled Paint Distress Spray, and then added Collage Medium and dusted then with glitter. Then attached them to each side of the tin. I added two more of the smallest Christmas Paper Doll kiddos, and one tiny Salvaged Deer.
 Now all that is left is to make a base to display it on. I started with the large Vignette Base, rubbed some Picket Fence Distress Paint on it and then wiped any excess off.

Then I used one of my new favorite wintery dies, the Ice Flake Bigz die. I cut two out of the Ideaology Mirror Sheets and Sizzix White Mat Board. I adhered them to the board and then attached them to the base.
 In order to be able to see the two flakes, I attached a wood slice to the top of the Vignette Base. Then attached an Ice Flake. Then I attached another wood slice and the second Ice Flake.  Once it was dry, I sprayed it with Distress Resist Spray and dusted it with Glitter.

Lastly I attached the Trinket Box to the top Ice Flake and added a little more Grit Paste and glitter so you couldn't see the edge of the box too prominently.

The last touch was the bit of Seam Binding ribbon lightly colored with Brushed Pewter Distress Spray.

How fun these snowy scenes are! I love the depth the trinket tins provide so that you can really build up your pieces. The birch trees looks so nice tucked behind the children it appears that they have been searching the forest to find their perfect tree. The snow and snowballs look so awesome on this piece! Just a wonderful little piece that would bring smiles to anyone who noticed. Thanks for sharing this great idea. x

Just adorable! Love the nostalgic shades of red and green and your genius construction. The base is very clever.
