Today, I want to show you a little twist for your Advent Calendars. Maybe is the fact that we have adult children, and that we live in an apartment, that pushed me to look at this project as a storage case that can live in my common area throughout the year... Let me show you what I have created:
As you can see I went with a design that can easily fit in any room of my apartment where we need storage for little items (my daughter is already thinking about a second one for her earrings and make up)
I used the 6x6 Dot/Stripe Petite Print pad and the12x12 Dot/Stripe papers to cut the covers for each box. My inspiration for the colors was one of my favorite collections of this year, HELLO AGAIN. I also used the Butterfly Wishes Doodle cuts to create matching butterfly die cuts and attached them to the front of each box.
For the top of the calendar, I used patterned paper from the Hello Again collection to cover the top and the roof of the house. I used a die to create the window and shutters and added that to the top of the house. I added a bit of pom pom trim to the edge of the house to mark the roof of the house. Then continued the butterfly theme to the top of the window and shutters..
Once it was all ready, I filled the little boxes with my Doodle pins and a few favorite little trinkets. Like I said, it is the perfect place for some extra storage.
I hope this gives you a new idea for your Advent Calendars. Remember to share with us what you create!
