Advent Fun

Good Morning,
We had so much fun making this in class yesterday. It looks like so much work but really I had everything die cut and punched so we assembled and stamped. It did take 3 hours but well worth the effort. I used a water bottle box and filled it with cupcake liners to separate each day. Wow was that easier than digging through a plastic bag of parts! I did use the designer paper Holly Berry and the 4 main colors of cardstock were Real Red, Wild Wasabi, Very Vanilla, and Chocolate Chip. The stamp set was 25 & counting 123794. The 3 ink pads and markers colors were Wild Wasabi, Real Red, and Chocolate Chip. Real Red glitter paper used for the star.The Die cut used was Stars #2 Peekaboo Frames 124587. The punches used were Curly Label 119851,Scallop Circle 119854, Scallop Square 119884, 1" Circle 119868, 1 1/4" Circle 119861, 1 3/8" Circle 119860, 1 1/4 Square 119865, Postage Stamp 122344. The Holly Punch, 1" punch ,and snowflake punch purchased from another retailer. If you want the larger cardstock squares are 2 x 2 and you can use an embossing folder and the big shot to give it texture. I also used the real red taffeta ribbon for a bow. Whenever using glitter paper and bows on projects like this use glue dots because they work the best. I also used my scissors to cut the some of the stamp numbers out like day 6. making these 3-4 at a time works great for multiple gifts at once!
Thanks for stopping
