December already! I haven't been in my craft room all week, but managed to make this just in time for December 1st. This set is from my personal collection which I had on my birthday wish list, so imagine how pleased I was to receive it! I've been itching to make something with it. I used the petal card double punch to make all the "box" fronts and for the handles I used the mini brads (page 109 - 122941) such good value as there are 200 pieces in a box @ £2.95! The image on day 19 are all bells, so I found a mini bell and tied it with linen thread over one of the bell images. Love it!
I used a partial embossing technique for the Advent Calendar topper. The topper was cut longer than I needed it so I partially dry embossed then folded in half to give it added strength. To decorate, I punched 6 pennants in Old Olive with the Petite Pennants Builder punch, folded them in half, added texture with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and made a 3D tree to decorate the top.
To achieve more than one colour on some of the stamped images, I used a variety of marker pens in More Mustard, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Bashful Blue, Basic Gray and Tempting Turquoise.
All I have to do next is fill it with sweets!
