ADVENT CALENDAR BOOKS
It's been longer than I thought since I've been here but
I wanted to share this awesome project. I found this great
tutorial for an Advent Calendar Book and decided to
make them for my grandaughters.
The insides are identical thats why there is
only one picture
of the boxes from 1" deep to 1.25" deep so a
scrunchie would fit...lol!!
I made all the boxes from white 68lb cardstock
and cut print card stock for each.
Tip: I have found in the many projects I have done
that its hard to get a crisp fold on heavy cardstock
and its my opinion that you can add strength to any
lighter weight cardstock box by gluing layers like
I did here with the print cardstock.
This also applies to multiple layers of die cut
letters, frames etc.
I was really happy with the way they turned out!!
I used my older circle dies and a set of lower case
letters I bought a few years ago.
I was missing a lot of stuff to even start these books
and being Covid I had to shop for the rest online.
I purchased the heavy chipboard, strong tape,
all the papers and sparkle paper for the box numbers
from a great shop in Windsor, Nova Scotia
My Stamping Studio!!
