Advent Boxes!!!!

Hellooooo, every year I just love to make some type of Advent Calendar, though I am running out of people to give them to now hahaha!!!  As soon as I saw these gorgeous little boxes from ~Tando-Creative~ all I could think of was 'Advent' stuff hahaha!!!  They would make amazing favour boxes but as I have done a 'few' of those lately I wasn't going there!!!!

When made up these are approx 5cm cubed so just the right size.  I love the scalloped top which tucks down neatly for the closure, you need to add a bit of glue in this fold to make it stronger.  I have painted the scallops and then used My Minds Eye glittery papers for the rest.  To keep with the 'country' feel I have strung them together with string & used Kraft card for the labels.  You can still open them hung this way but how amazing would they be strung individually & hung on your tree?  I did manage to get a pic of them altogether though I know it doesn't look very elegant hahaha!!!


Wouldn't these make fantastic favour boxes or just a little box for that 'special' little present???  For stockists take a looksee ~here~.  Thank you for taking a look today, Hugs & Stuff, XXXXXXX
