The best Advent calendar



Pretty boxes

Last year I put together and decorated a number of  Kaisercraft MDF Advent Calendar kits. Going through my craft stash this morning, I found a new kit which I had forgotten about and so I have spent this afternoon making it up and covering the 24 little box drawers with pretty paper.

I still need to add some buttons/ribbons/ brads for small handles to open the drawers and I will have another look through my bits and bobs to see what I can use.

Here is today’s make;

Of course, it doesn’t need to be made up as an Advent Calendar and they make a lovely gift if you are feeling generous of pocket and spirit!  Here is a link to last year’s versions;

Lovely, aren’t they?

Ho! Ho! Ho!

I can’t believe that I spent most of my week’s holiday putting together an Advent Calendar, but that’s exactly what I have done and have now put the finishing touches to my efforts.

At least the hot temperatures we’ve had recently helped everything dry quickly!

The calendar is produced by Kaisercraft as part of their “Beyond the Page” range and already I’ve had several people asking me to do one for them but I think that it is much nicer if you order the basic pack and do it yourself!
