advent calander

Here is my take on Christine Emberson Advent calender ,I had booked to go on one of her course`s to do them but with my daughter down haven`t got much time left so I made up 24 bxs and asked my hubby could he make a bx fit fit them and he did he varnished it for me I didn`t have the labels 22 die Christine used for the backing of numbers so I used for different dies to keep up with the colour of card I used ,I have made three for my grandchildren ,2 for Angela and 1 for my sstep grandson ,
but I may have to make another 2 for my sister-in-law to grand children but she is letting me know,
there is going to be a twist on this will post when finished

So here it is

 Card from my local craft shop ,
number die from there as well
Spellbinders die for bx
variety of dies for numbers back and front

  6. Hi Melanie,
    superb version of the advent calendar. Love all the different design labels. So sorry you couldn't make the course. Still you have made a superb job of it as I said.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  7. Hi Melanie, I have nearly finished making seven of these Advent Frames, and now I need to get back to card making once I have added the finishing touches. Your Advent Calander is simply gorgeous, I know the amount of work involved in cutting, embossing and sticking these little boxes.
