With December rapidly advancing, today's project is a lovely little Advent Calendar idea, using the new Tag Box Template, one of our saleable templates you can find under Chipboard Templates on the left hand sidebar.
All the saleable templates are super cheap, this one is only $1, but they do help to support the site, pay for the site fees etc, so do consider having a browse there. We have heaps and heaps of free stuff too on the Member pages, so register with the site to get acess to those.
The idea is that sometimes it is nice to make an advent that is not focussed on chocolate, or maybe you want to make a more adult themed advent for someone special in your life, as I have done here. Each tag has a message on the reverse but you could add a non-edible treat idea, like 'a trip out to the movies' etc.
I had such fun making this one and it didn't take too long to do at all. To complete the whole project including the 24 tags took about a day to do but not solidly working.
This project is simplicity itself, once the box has been constructed, you can just use co-ordinating festive papers to decorate both the box and each tag. I have used some die cut numbers on a punched scallop circle and lots of Distress Inks to add some depth.
Alternatively, you can use this as a lovely gift box for a treat for a special someone and there will be a couple more ideas along this theme posted here on the blog over the next few days, so come back to visit if you would like to see those.
In the meantime, thanks for joining me here and Happy Crafting!.
