Welcome to November! We are officially in countdown mode to Christmas with less than 2 months to go before the big day! One of the traditions that we love at our house is the Advent Calendar. We usually scramble at the end of November to get one created in time for December 1st. But, not this year!
"The 2011 Silhouette limited edition advent calendar is the best way to use your Silhouette to count down to Christmas. The calendar is a 15" wood shadowbox which includes a special download card redeemable for 25 boxes and drawers from the Silhouette Online Store. Each box and drawer template is downloaded automatically into My Library and is pre-sized and labeled for each compartment of your shadowbox advent calendar. Fill each box or drawer with a holiday message or a little treat and enjoy the holiday season."
What could make this even better? Using Simple Stories "25 Days of Christmas" of course! This Christmas line was created just for this type of project. The 6x6 Paper Pad is absolutely perfect for decorating the drawer fronts and the number sticker sheet has so many great options!
The box is originally white, but you can see that I added some distress ink to mine so it would coordinate better with my paper as well as my vintage themed Christmas decor. There are so many possibilities with this project. You can create the drawers or the boxes or a combination of both! In fact, those mini boxes would be great gift boxes too!
Here are a couple closeups for you:
