Advent Calendar – Countdown to Christmas ~ Day 13

Back in October my friend, Elly, from the UK and I designed an advent calendar using a 24 cup mini muffin pan.  During December I been sharing a square each day   with a brief desciption on how we made it.

You will want to open each post, as there will be a little treat behind each one!  Some days it might be some virtual ‘candy’ or sweeties as we call them in the UK, other times it might be a card, 3D project or a video!

Each of the squares start with a 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 inch base with 4 little magnets stuck to the back with glue dots.  The primary colors are  Real Red, Old Olive, Smoky Slate and Soft Sky. Ink Colors included those above, plus two neutrals of  Tip Top Taupe and Early Expresso.



Poinsettia were in my mind on this square, I love doing punch art and the Blossom Bunch punch is perfect for making them. Real Red and Old Olive card were used for the ‘bracts’ and gold glimmer paper for the center ‘flower’   This was all layered onto a 1 1/2″ circle of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and a 2 x 2 square of the ‘This Christmas’ specialty DSP.

Today’s virtual treat:


Quality Street is a big Christmas favorite in the UK.  A variety of ‘sweeties’ most covered in chocolate, my grandmother always bought a tin of these for us so they have fond memories for me.
