Hello and this is my first post.
Today i have been making an advent calendar with my Nana Lou. She started at Craftaganza and didn't finish it so i helped her finish it off today. It has kept us busy all day long.
First of all i scored the inside of each box on the ultimate pro and then folded them, creasing each line using the scoring tool. we then made the wrappers and stacked the 12 boxes together. We then put them all together and added this underneath the bit that was already made. After this we then added some more purple and blue card with snowflake paper on the top.
I wanted to add a picture to the top so i chose a little swalk girl from winter cheer and coloured it in with my nana's spectrum noirs. I coloured the face using 3 skin tones, 142,133 and 132 and then 135 for the cheeks. Then i chose blue and pinky purple to match the calendars colours. to finish off the picture i used a glue pen and sprinkled some glamour dust over the furry edges to her coat, hat and snowflakes.
After this i thought it needed some decoration so we put on some sparkly snowflakes with a gem on to each side and the top. To finish we put handles for each drawer made of ribbon. Once the glue has dried we are going to put chocolates in the drawers and the top box.
All done! I love it.
