Merry Grinchmas!

In our home we love all things Grinch. So when I saw these mini heart charms after Valentine's Day last February, I knew exactly what I wanted to make for Christmas this December....a Grinch shadow box. Here's why I came up with the whole heart thing....a quote from The Grinch.....
"And what happened, then? Well, in Whoville they say - that the Grinch's small heart grew three sizes that day. And then - the true meaning of Christmas came through, and the Grinch found the strength of *ten* Grinches, plus two!"
The shadow box came from Hobby Lobby ($12 on sale). The Grinch fabric that I lined the  background with came from Joann's ($7 a yard and I probably used less than 1/4 of a yard).

I used my Cricut to cut the hearts on the glass out of paper. I think it was Basic George.

The ribbon tied around the shadow box I had on hand but I got from Joann's after Christmas last year.

Oh and those hearts....came from Joann's for 75% off after Valentine's Day. I used one box and I think it cost $2.

Love the way it turned out and that my family loves it!

Merry Grinchmas!
