Milk Carton Advent Calender


Hello followers, friends and family.  It's time to get making those Advent calenders for the children before December is here.  I make one every year so the grandchildren can open doors or boxes when they come to call. 


I have been working on my Advent calendar this week, a blue and white theme with snowflakes.  it is made up of 25 small milk carton boxes and a base to hold them.  The milk carton boxes are great for holding 4 or 5 treats, ideal for a group of children or grandchildren to open and enjoy each day.



The boxes and base were cut on the Silhouette Cameo with a Lori Whitlock cutting file using Papermilldirect white linen and marine blue card, a lovely combination and a change from the traditional Christmas colours.


Each box was stamped with Stampers Anonymous snowflake stamps and heat embossed.  The boxes were assembled, filled with chocolates, and a date tag fastened to each box with a contrasting ribbon.

How is your Christmas crafting coming along? I have lots of Christmas makes to show you over the next few weeks, my Christmas crafting is nearly done just a few more cards to make.  back soon.
