My kiddos and I were supposed to go to an annual Christmas parade in a near by town, but decided since my little guy was feeling puny (and due to the gunk in his eye), we better sit this one out. Did I mention that it was a very cold and windy day here in Missouri? 25° and windy, brrr...
Anyhow, every year my dad buys both girls their own advent calendar. I thought that it would be fun to try and make one that they could use over and over and fill with their favorite candy. I wish that I could say that I snuck off to my craft room to finish up on the Christmas advent calendar I started yesterday, but I will have to settle for saying that I lugged a bunch of my stuff to the kitchen counter...I don't have a craft room! I hope to someday! wink wink hubby!
Here are a few of the pictures of how it turned out. I wish the pictures were a little better, but I am working in a poorly lit kitchen. lol
In each of the drawers I have placed a piece of candy for both of the girls (my little guy is too small for candy). I chose two of their favorites, peanut butter cups and kisses. I can feel my waistline expanding just thinking about them. lol. Anyway, I used one of my circle punches to cut the patterned paper and then inked all the edges and stamped each circle with some stamps from Post Card Add Ons stamp set from My Creative Time and then adhered them to the candy.
Considering this is my first non-card project, I am pretty pleased with how it turned out. However, I think I might go back later and add a few things on to the drawers just to jazz it up a bit. I also will be trying to figure out how to get pictures that are a lot more clear!
