I've been doing these for years - 'jewelry Christmas trees' Two or three years ago I started lining the inside of the shadowbox frames with tiny lights - really makes everything sparkle! Cord hangs down from the back of the frame to plug in. Great fun to make! Need to grab the jewels at the thrift store for this one.
Love these "mail" presents - Use craft paper or grocery sack for wrapping then Christmas stickers for the stamps. Crochet cotton string works for the string in this old fashioned "mailed" package wrapping. You can pickup some computer disc labels at the dollar stores to use as address labels. Copy postage cancel stamp images from Google and you have it. - Pam
