The Miniature Christmas Scene
|The structure was made out of foam-core board and covered in greeting-paper-like fabric. I made the lid removable and put a big red bow of cloth ribbon on top.
There was an engraved brass plate attached to the center of the bottom section which read "A Leiber Family Christmas (circa 1960)". On the underside of the package was a covered trap-door that opened up to a battery housing for two 'C' batteries to power the lights on the miniature tree.
The front panel was a frame of clear glass so that the insides could be seen without opening the package. However, it was hinged at the bottom so that once the lid is removed, two velcro side tabs can be unfastened and the glass panel folds down to expose the interior scene.
