Christmas Paris in Jar

Eversince I was a kid, my favorite part of school field trip were dioramas in museums. It built this fascination in me the illustration of a certain event or place in a small glass box. It was cool to me back when I was small. It served as my old school 3D. I didn't care if it is not a motion picture. I had my imagination to create stories :)


 This is my inspiration for this. I just happen to have this souvenir Eiffel Tower lying around the house and I used my 50 cent jar I bought at the thrift store. The Paris text is actually just stickers.. I didn't even had to buy it. It was given to me by my mother-in-law-.

I took some sand from my wedding leftover jar. It has some glitter with it for snow effect. Then, I printed out "joyeux noel" (French for Merry Christmas) on a piece of brown paper. Made a tiny banner out of it an glued on toothpicks. Of course I cut the sharp part.






 I hope you enjoyed my simple 
Christmas Parisian project :)

  25. Oh my goodness! I am in LOVE with this! I totally understand how you feel about the dioramas. It is such a great surprise when you come across a model on a tour. I'd rather look at the model more than the life size stuff. Your project made me feel the same way!
