A place for Christmas Cards

I don't know about you but i get some wonderful handmade Christmas cards from some great family and friends that i can't bear to toss out.  But what to do with them?  I found a great solution! A box for them, not just any box a nice sturdy and alterable one that will hold up year after year.

ATG Gun and adhesive
Glue Dots
Lil Charm
Silk flowers
Acrylic snowflakes
Cricut Machine
CTMH My creations Memory Keeper
CTMH Creative Basics Jingle collection paper
CTMH Juniper CS
CTMH Juniper Grossgrain Ribbon
CTMH Cranberry Grossgrain Ribbon

Starting with the blank white Memory keeper measuring 10" x 91/2" x 3"  I cut all the papers to fit. I cut "Christmas Cards" with SCAL using Addams Family Font out of white vinyl. The Shape its on was also cut in SCAL using Cutting Up 09 font. I inked the edges of the papers. The picture is from the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland ride. I thought it to be fitting.   I matted the picture on scraps of paper. attached with my ATG gun. Added the ribbon for some accent. Then using glue dots attached snowflakes and silk poinsetta with a button in the middle and the lil heart charm for the finishing touches.
