Ive been on a mission this year to use up older stash and papers, so a way of using up some old christmas papers i thought advent calendars for my beautiful nieces.
So this first one is shared by 2 little girls, sizzix box die made up with white card and layered with papermania papers, twine threaded to keep the lids shut, i joined the boxes using velcro so that they can easily be taken apart and reused in future as well. As its for little hands kept it quite simple for them. In the boxes i didn't just add chocolate i added little toys, nail polish which they love, dried fruits, so each box is a surprise for them. Difficult to get a decent photo.
and this second one is for the little one, she is only one so wanted it really easy for her
Very old GCD papers folded into little pockets big enough to hold a large chocolate coin. Tim Holtz poinsettia die for the flowers and buttons. This one was much quicker to make as half way through the big one i did wonder why i started it but luckily they love them and thats all that matters. Crafting to bring joy to others is the best. Thank you for looking and following my venture into blogland!. Emma x
