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 am sharing one of the squares each day, with a brief description of 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.
Day 15 brings us a little Christmas gift box. This is a 1″ square of silver foil which was run thru the Big Shot with the Softly Falling Embossing folder. Then wrapped with the Metallic Thread in Red and Green.
“No Peeking” is the perfect sentiment for this square and it comes from the ‘Oh What Fun’ stamp set which was used a LOT in the making of the calendar.
Todays Virtual Treat:

I am sharing this now because it uses the same supplies as used in a lot of the Advent Calendar squares ~ to show how versatile they are!
