Here is my take on the Challenge. 
I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the adhesive vinyl wording 'Merry & Bright' & applied the wording using transfer tape. 
I bought an inexpensive shadow box & decorated the backing board by sticking down some pretty design paper. I added the 6mm coloured jingle bells to the desired height. Adhered my wording to the glass and I was done. This would make a pretty and inexpensive Christmas gift.
