hole punch
package or die cut snow flakes
ribbon and bells of choice
Tim Holtz woodlands tree and wreath
Miniature reindeer found in the doll house section of most craft stores.
recycled acetate from various packages
recycled cold medicine box
window die cut "several companies have these but I found with a rectangle and a small pair of scissors you can do the same..the key is layering.
Last but not least liquid snow and glitter...we all have glitter..but if by chance the snow is a challenge to get you can take cornstarch and or baking soda mixed with very little white glue and BAM!!! Snow chunks!

Glue two base tags together making sure to weather them slightly with your ink, 
unwrap medicine box to be flat and carefully cut sguare matching your window size only slightly smaller, cover outside of box with paper/ glue image to the inside. Reassemble box ")
Now add tree and moss inside. Assemble acetate and window die and adhere to medicine box, adhere to tag. assemble the rest of your embellishments to taste and then apply snow and glitter")
