Happy Saturday Lovely people!
Todays different is, as always, a box lol however this is a series of box's each holding a surprise! I have been trying to work out my own advent calendar and this was my first attempt. This one is a mantelpiece decoration and the pictures truly do not do it justice. Mainly because I don't have a mantelpiece!
As you can see this is a series of hanging box's each cut in different pieces of Do'crafts home for Christmas paper. I have decorated each one with different die cuts using the dies I have listed below. if you zoom in you will see the legend Merry Christmas strung across these with one letter, cut in glitter card, on each box.
Here you can see one of the box's open with a small packet of chocolates inside.
The box's were cut using a Sizzix Pro die using 12 x 12 cardstock. Now this die needs a large machine so I have to admit that I have saved my pennies and bought a Sizzix Big Shot Pro which takes a sheet of 12 x 12 cardstock.
Dies used Spellbinders labels one, frosty forms, scalloped circles, snowflake pendant.
I have some ideas for using these as a full advent calendar but these may have to wait for next Christmas, hopefully I can present these early enough next year to make it available as a kit as I know this is an expensive machine and die.
