I have to say, I LOVE advent calendars but have never owned one. I've been on the hunt for many years to find just “the” one. Now I have it. I absolutely adore this wonderful white shadow box frame and its deep cubbies by Silhouette America. It's couldn't be more perfect for my decor AND it's large enough to stash all kinds of goodies and surprises!
The download card that comes with the calendar gives you the option of either boxes or drawers to fill your calendar spaces. And since I can never make a decision (hence the reason I never had a calendar before!) so I chose to do BOTH and mixed up both the drawers and adorable boxes for my own custom look. All the papers and embellishments here are from BasicGrey's JOVIAL line - perhaps my favorite holiday line ever and on sale now at basicgrey.com (at little enabling there) - with just a little hint of some cardstock and BASICS paper.
Supplies: BasicGrey's Jovial - patterned paper, stitched brads, glazed brads, alpha stickers (micro & mini), die-cut pieces, rub-ons, Small Details; BasicGrey Basics Paper; BasicGrey Origins, Basics and Studio Calico exclusive alphas
Other: BoBunny cardstock, Fiskars punches, McGill punches
I'm already on the hunt for wonderful things to fill it and I'm not quite sure I can wait until the holidays to hang it up!
