Advent calendar


An advent calendar for my little neighbour.

I have die cut the boxes using a Crafters Companion double sided box die. I covered the boxes with polka dot card. I made a hole in each box lid and added a loop of ribbon to act as a handle. I attached the die cut  numbers which I cut using Crafters Companion dies. I attached the boxes onto white card using wet glue. I added satin ribbon around the outer edge of the completed layout of boxes.

I stamped and die cut the sentiment using a Lisa Horton set and printed the personalisation. I added these to the centre of my design and then completed my project with snowflakes which I cut with a punch.
