Vintage Box Collage

One of the items that just seems to find me when I am on the vintage christmas hunt is old department store gift boxes.  Ahhh, the good ol’ days when you purchased an item at the department store and then you could stop in at the gift wrap counter and get a free cardboard (not collapsible) and usually decorated box.  Or items put out for the holiday season came in cool decorated boxes.  Also christmas card boxes and corsage boxes can be very fun too.

 

I used to put these under my christmas trees for decorations but then I got so many they were covering up the fabulous tree skirts.  Recently I gathered them all up and fired up the glue gun and there you go.

The beauty of this easy creation is that I can continue to add to it.  The different depths of the assorted boxes lends a very nice 3D effect to the collage.  I just added a couple of command adhesive velcro strips to the back for hanging.

My favorite box is the nucleus of the collage, the Rich’s christmas box with the “great tree”.  My mother is from Atlanta and I lived there until I was 8 years old and I have very fond memories of shopping at Rich’s and attending the lighting of the “great tree”.

Happy Holidays!!
