Advent CalendarTutorial ...

I filled the Advent Calendar with chocolates and took it up for Isabella last night. Her mum was delighted with it and has said she willl keep it and refill it next year for her too.

It is very satisfying when someone really appreciates that work the you have put in.

"OooH...." she said ... "I want one of these

This is the box that I didn't complete on the film but I said I would add it to the Blog once it was done.

This one has silver Gilding Flakes added to it and the numbers are from the Letterbox set from Clarity Stamp

The card is the larger sized 16" square Centura Pearl from Crafters Companion  and the larger size is so useful to many projects.

But this colour scheme and the... "I want one ..." comment inspired another video which I will add tomorrow... and that is a more adult version that I have called a "Keepsake Box".
But for today  here is the link to the
Advent Calendar Tutorial   
and I hope you enjoy it.
