Create a Winter Window Layout

Hello, all!  Shellye McDaniel here with a sweet dimensional scrapbook layout with a window feature as a focal point. It’s simple to do so let’s get started!

Create the Window Feature

To begin I took a 12X12 sheet of double-sided scrapbook paper.  Next, I placed a 6X6 square in the center for tracing.

After I traced around the square, I cut from point-to-point as shown below.

I folded the edges back gently by bringing the flaps to the front of the scrapbook page.

Next, I used small pieces of Crafty Foam Tape and attached to the backside of each flap.

Following that, I attached the flaps to the front of the scrapbook paper.  I made sure that each of the flaps was evenly apart and formed a neat square.

Making the Second Layer

For the next step, I attached a wood-grain patterned paper to the back.  First I added strips of the Crafty Foam Tape as shown below.

Once the background paper has been added, I now have the perfect slate for photos and embellishments!

The Embellishing Details

To the inside of the window, I added pom trim with strips of Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/8in to hold in place.

After threading the twine, I attached two wooden buttons to the sides of the ‘window’ with Adhesive Dots 3D.

Of course, the snowflakes needed some bling, so I attached pink rhinestone with the smallest of the 3D Foam Circles White Mix. By using the foam, I was able to continue the dimensional effect!

After adding the cardstock tags, I used the Dual Tip Glue Pen to attach pieces of the die-cut snowflakes.  I like using just a small dollop of the glue so that the die-cuts aren’t completely flat.
