Michele's advent calendar box frame!
Box from frame
Janet's Beautiful boxes!
Good Saturday morning ladies,
Some lovely crafts once again as it's Saturday, just a couple this week.
First up we have Michele's Amazing Advent Box Frame, such a fantastic idea, something that can
be used year after year to hide little gifts in for the 24 days of Advent, the good thing with this
Is that you can have the numbers running consecutively or mix them up, just like the
Advent calendars that you can buy, but without the cheap tasting chocolate!
I think a nice idea would be to have all of the figures that make up the people and animals of
The nativity, then placing the most important part on Christmas Eve, a go if way to explain the story
To your children, alternatively you can pop in chocolates or small gifts.
The boxes look like they are made with Spellbinders Bracket Edge a Box die,
I know Christine Emberson was selling the frames in her Hope Chances online shop.
That one is made to fit that particular box die too.
You can also change the card on the boxes to make them look brighter and cleaner.
Thank you so very Michele for sharing your fantastic crafts for us to share.
Next we have Janet's beautiful boxes, so pretty Janet, you have used such gorgeous papers/fabric to cover the boxes and the lace trim and pearls make the boxes so feminine, the heart shaped one looks like a little sewing box, the flowers on top of the bobbin just finish the box perfectly.
The square box looks special with it's brass looking closure and the trim and decoration you have used on it, work so well, not sure if you are giving these boxes as gifts or not but oh boy, they would make somebody's day.
Thank you so much for sharing them with us Janet xxx
Today we have another very special meeting going on, our Maureen is travelling up to meet
Patricia and Hazel, I hope you all have an amazing get together, I know you will, remember to make you have a very comfy chair, those hours just fly by once you start talking, I think there will be plenty of laughter too, make sure you a "prepared" ! I am so looking forward to hearing all about it.
I am spending the days with lovely ladies too, Sue, Pat, Paul & I are off to Newbury Racecourse to a Craft Show, it doesn't look like there are too many Exhibitors, Jenny Mayes is demonstrating, so that will be good. I will update you later on.
I hope you all gave a lovely day, whatever you are doing,
Love and hugs
