Let the Countdown Begin!
This is what my daughter Raphaella is saying" I wish it was the first of December!" Why? Even though she is 20 years old ,she still LOVES Advent Calenders and has had one, every year, ever since she was 2!When Irini from Get Creative asked me to do an advent challenge for November, I knew that I had to make something for Raphaella, so I made her a Matchbox House, here it is. She is dying to tear the first opening to reveal what the matchbox has inside......
For the detail on the other side I cut out the tree and birdhouse, coloured the birds and covered them with Glossy Accents, for some definition, I also used Stikles on the Christmas Tree and on the Holy and some of the roses.
I have left the back for last, even thought I finished the back of first...this is what I did....I first added ribbon tags on each box so as to pull open easier, then I added the little something into each box.....#25 has the main part of her christmas presant in it.I stacked and glued boxes together leaving 6 for the roof.I then drew there shape onto the back of the Jillibean paper and serrated 3 of each side of each box and punched a hole at each box too, I wanted a way to seal the boxes so as no cheating could happen. Once all this was done I stuck the paper onto the sides of the boxes and also to the sides and top of the house.
