Hi there my lovely blogging friends! Today I am showing you an Advent Calendar that I decorated for the monthly challenge over at VANILLA SUGAR.....sweetly handmade! This blog was started way back in January with a view to giving us all ideas for gifts! Do pop over for a look at the lovely work that the Design Team have done this year!
I bought this as a blank in the January sales...I do like to think ahead hahahaha!!!!!
These aren't drawers as I first thought but boxes....you can cram more in those haha! I have covered all the fronts using a mix of papers from the Basic Grey Jovial Collection. The 'knobs' are just office paper fasteners & I have put felt circles underneath. The numbers come in a pack especially for Advent calendars & are from TANDO CREATIVE, you can find stockists ~HERE~. The surround has been painted using a red matchpot form a DIY store!!!
The largest drawer has a pointsetta from my stash & a lovely brad from K&Co. Oh & I just had to add a bit of glittery stickles....it is for Christmas after all!!!
If you happen to be up around Lingfield in Surrey on Saturday, Di from Tando will be demonstrating her fab chippie all day!!! I will be popping in so maybe I will see you there!!!
Thank you for popping by....HUGS XXX
