I actually made this diorama to go with my Christmas decor, but I don't think I ever blogged it. I made it more wintery than Christmasy so I could display it until spring. This is likely the only snow I'll get in Georgia this year. It's housed in one of those great Ikea Ribba shadowbox frames I love and keep going on and on about.
The frame's actually pretty big, about 20 inches x 20 inches. I love how having the shadowbox depth allows me to build up the paper shapes with those 3D sticky dots to get some light/shadow play. I'm not happy with the birdie's feet or the berries, but I was too manic and time-poor to have a redo at Christmas, and now I'm just too lazy to unframe it in order to make them smaller.
I found I really love making these paper dioramas, and I plan to do a new one for spring with lots of branchy trees.
