Jolly Ole Saint Nicholas

I always love the vintage Christmas collections that I think KaiserCraft has become known for.  This years collection is called St. Nicholas and it's just beautiful. 
I created this adorable shadow box with a handmade mini album that is stored in it.  Many of the detailed paper pictures were fussy cut and attached with foam tape. 
I discovered this wonderful little tip for foam tape....purchase a piece of foam sheet at your local craft store and then run through a Xyron Creation Station machine.  You have handmade foam tape in no time and then you can use away just the way I do. 
Here are numerous pictures of my project to give you a good idea of the piece. 
The handmade flower centered at the top is made from Cheery Lynn Dies.  I always love their stunning flowers.
