advent calendar.....well i made a start !!


Hi all

I am home again from  visiting  my daughter and family...I had  a fab time and now I am re-unitd with my craft stash...I made a start on an advent calendar !!. I thought it would be nice to have an advent calendar on a string you can hang up...I saw the idea in a SU catalogue and had a go at it for myself.The pillow box die I used is from sizzix. The ribbon is from su . the snowflake die is from Marianne d. The numbers are made using a TH vintage market die. I also used my scalloped punches...I will make the other 22 boxes over the next couple of weeks and attatch them to some string ready for december...
