I guess you’ve all seen this fabulous Silhouette Advent Calendar! Well, instead of drawing for the past week, this was what I’ve been up to plus christmas shopping!
The moment I saw this Advent Calendar, I just had to have it! You can cut boxes or drawers and all the templates are included. I opted for the boxes, this way my kids can’t peak through each of the days. I also decided not to add the numbers, its not that hard to figure out! I couldn’t wait to get started so half of the boxes were cut using the SD on the first evening and the next evening I setup the Cameo and completed the rest. On the third evening, I decorated each box and stuffed them with all sorts of goodies and trinkets! The papers I used were from several paper packs: Ellen Krans – Mambi Sheets, Recollections – Jingle Bells, Diane Kappa – Home for the Holidays, Echo Park – Holly Jolly Christmas and Echo Park – Season’s Greeting. I had bought the last two earlier but only in 6×6 pads…so couldn’t use too many of the sheets. 🙁
All in all, I think it took about 16 hours and a good 25 to 30 sheets of paper.
My son who is 11 years old is looking forward to it and even my 20 year old…she’s still my little baby girl! This may not have been a quick project but I’d have to say, I thoroughly enjoyed putting it together and I am pleased on how it turned out. Thanks so much for popping by and checking out my project!
