Start with a 5.5" x 5.5" configurations box. We ended up removing one of the pieces, but Tim designed these for rearranging possibilities - you can keep the pieces you don't use for next time!
Cut down some Seasonal Paper Stash papers to fit on the outer sides and insides of the little boxes - Tim & Mario used a Martha Stewart Scoring Board to make folding the pieces into the inside small boxes easier.
Some of the Idea-ology you see above:
Symphony Tissue Tape, Grunge Blocks, Plaquettes, Christmas Adornments, Corners, Sanding Grip (to bring out some shine on the Corners)
Foundations helped hold the entire piece together!
Note: You can mix and match ANY idea-ology to make the piece your own. There is SO much to choose from too!!!
Additional Embellishments: Jingle Bells, Tinsel, and we added Rock Candy Stickles for a nice sugar coating (you can see it a little bit on the right side in this photo)!
Other possibilities for Configurations:
- Ever since Tim Holtz planted the idea that you can turn the inside boxes around in Configurations, I've been dying to make an advent calendar with pull-out drawers!!
- Create a wall hanging
- Use the inside pieces for ornaments! Punch a hole through the top, decorate, and deck the halls!
- Use the inside pieces as place settings for holiday guests. Decorate the outside and put a small treat or the person's photo inside
- Stack inside pieces in a triangular tree shape and adhere together for a family tree - each box dedicated to a different family member
