Merry Christmas From Crafting for all Seasons


Hi everyone, welcome once again, this fortnight we have an anything but a card challenge for you, and the project I have done is something I have wanted to do for a while now. It is a matchbox advent calendar. I used Pool Party card stock along with a matchbox  die to make all the boxes, punching out the half circles from them to be able to open them out, and then glued them together to form a square.  I have used the winter frost designer paper to decorate the sides. The images on the side panel are from Lacy Sunshine, the one is called Snowflake Quality Control, the other is Bubbles skiing, I have used Promarkers to color the images, and then cut them out using a memory box die set which was also used for the border using Silver glimmer paper. The numbers were stamped using Designer Typeset from Stamping Up, the first Photo Polymer set they came out with. Then punched using a 1/2 inch circle punch. The ribbon on the top and bottom is the 3/8 ruffled pool party ribbon from Stampin Up.l  For the top I made the final box and added the lettering dies for the date, and decorated it with a bow, which I also made the foil striped sheet from the designer paper pack.
I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas, and a great 2014.
Thanks for looking.
