This was something different for me, I don't like measuring in any way shape or form, I just cant stand fiddling about and being just so. My crafting is what it is.........but saying that I totally enjoyed making this and I know I will be doing things along the same lines very soon. !
There are some other very clever and beautiful Advent Calenders being entered and I truly wish them all the best of luck too, fingers crossed for all of the beautiful things enterd. X
I made a template, which my lovely Hubby had measured out for me. This was because this whole Advent Calender was being built up around the chocolates I had already bought to pop into it.. I know that's the wrong way around but they are just so pretty I had to have them for my Granddaughter X
I made up the boxes, 25 in total, it took quite a few hours but was well worth it in the end and became quite a challenge at times.
Its started to make sense and I liked it x
So I added quite a few bells in Red, Blue, Gold and Green and 2 purple velour ribbons.
The bells make the most fantastic Sleigh bell sound, so Christmassy .
The top box is to have something special popped in on Christmas eve, by Santa X
These are the chocolates that the whole Advent calender was built around ............................
I have a video of this on Youtube..
