Christmas Make ...

Hi Everybody,

Last year I made lots of these for the children in our family and they were so popular that even the adults wanted them for keepsake afterwards.

I made a video of the process and it was very well received.

So I thought I would add this in plenty of time in case you wanted to make some for your family  and add to the boxes what ever you fancy.

Chocolates, sweeties, soaps, jewelry,   Diamonds .... er we ll maybe not !!

The video shows the Advent Calender being made for a child, in fact I made it for Isabella,  but the picture shows a more grown up version that was made for a teenager.

The box die is the Bracket Edged Box and it is very easy to make the whole calender.

But it will take you some time to create 25 boxes and so I am giving you plenty of it to get busy making this lovely Advent Calender.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx


  1. Hi Christina, I made 10 of these Advent boxes last year and yes it takes some time to cut all the boxes but the end result is amazing.

  2. Hi Christina,
    This must have taken a long while to make and you made more than one, that dedication.
    Thanks for the video.

  3. I just love these advent boxes Christina, I made one of these before I was blogging, so there is no pics, but I am going to have a go this year as I have a couple of children who I know would just love them. Thanks for the video. Hugs, Jen x
