Advent Calendar

I'm so excited... last night I finished the Advent Boxes, which were inspired by Ali Edwards. Just like the December album, I wasn't too sure that I was going to be able to finish it. I was short of patterned paper and cardstock. I didn't have enough chipboard numbers to do all of them. How and where am I going to put them? Lots of questions I kept asking myself, but as the project was evolving, things seemed to come together.

On Friday I went to the art shop to buy a piece of foam board (size A1) and the postman delivered the cardstock I needed to fold the last boxes. By the way, if you want to know how to fold the boxes, you can find it here. I adhered the boxes to the foam board with double sided tape. And I ended up punching two holes in the top left and right corner and used ribbon to hang it on a wreath hanger that fits over the door.

Everyday also contains a little note. Today's note reads (in preparation of Sinterklaas):

Supplies: cardstock - Bazzill, PPs - Basic Grey, die cuts - Sizzix, Cuttlebug, buttons - unknown, butchers twine - supermarket, ribbon - local haberdashery, stamp - Art Warehouse, Basic Grey & Fontwerks, tag - newsagent.

Have a great Monday!
