Christmas Frame - Party Prize

I rarely make holiday themed frames because I feel they are something that can only be enjoyed for a short amount of time instead of staying out all year long. In the Webster's Pages box I got last year there was some gorgeous Christmas paper and it made me go out on a limb and make a themed frame for a party prize.

Supplies Used:
12x12 Memory Frame
Webster's Pages Paper
Colorbox Chalk Ink
Petaloo Flowers
Pearl Brads
Various Embellishments

The white flowers are actually some of the "COLOR ME" flowers that you can ink, dye, spray, etc. I used Glimmer Mist on these to give them a little sparkle. The Pearl Brads are some I got at Eyelet Outlet and I just love them! I am not sure where they reindeer came from, I just found them in my stash of Christmas embellishments. I used the brads from the flowers to attach the reindeer to the frame and tried to position them so it looked like they were leaping into the picture. I couldn't really figure out another way to attach the reindeer and this method seemed to work out great.

Here you can see more detail of the flowers and also some of the little "skittles" I added for some extra detail. Those little plastic accents can really add to a project while not being overly intrusive.

I used mounting from under the metal "Christmas" sign to bring it up off the frame. I wish I could remember who makes the little metal sign and I am sure one of my readers will know. I thought it worked perfectly for the frame.
