A step further...

I have been  tossing and turning  during the night with  measurements  going round my head.

Somebody  said they would love to be  inside my head for  day to see what goes on ....  No You Don't!!!

Any way this  Advent  Calendar  has been taken a step further.

In the  original the small  boxes fell out if the base box was tilted and it was a bit of a nuisance.

So I have made  a divider for  the inside that will hold all the small  ones in place.

 And it gives a much  neater  appearance to the whole  creation.

I have also  added  Googly eyes to the  characters on the front of the box, some  Want2Scrap  Diamante to each of the  numbers,  and some  pretty lace around the inside edge.

Over the  weekend I am going to film the making of one  and show you how I did it.

I hope you will pop back and see the video which will have to filmed and edited around the Formula 1 .

That is my "Film Crews" favorite sport and he will be glued to the telly ... with his cup of tea and the obligatory quarted oranges.

Hugs xx

  2. Bought this die and love it.I have my advent callender for this year but next year.....Thank you for all of your inspirational posts. Hugs Linda

  3. Hello Christine, what a lovely calendar.
    I know how you exactly how much you will have been thinking about this project as I have made SIX, yes I did say SIX, very similar to this. I used the same little box die which I love. The only difference is that I used foam craft board for my frames which my hubby cut and constructed for me. As soon as I get chance I will try and get a photo on to my computer and maybe I can email it to you for you to have a look at. I must say I'm really pleased with them all but am glad I've finished them.
