Christmas Countdown

I do love advent calendars!  Last year I made up the Kaisercraft one with all the drawers and really enjoyed doing it.

This year, I purchased Kerri Bradford’s cutting file project for use with my Silhouette.  I stuck to her colour scheme and used the print files that came with with the kit.  I also added a bit of bling here and there to finish it off.

There are, obviously, 24 Tag Boxes so I mounted them on a black canvas using Velcro Dots.  At a squeeze, each box will hold a pack of Tic-Tacs but I think I will pop a mini treat bar in each one.

Not like me to be excited about Xmas this far out but I had such fun making this the other night that I stayed up till 1.30am to finish putting it all together.

I might just make another to give away, in another colour scheme, if I don’t get distracted by something else new and wonderful, lol.
