I have finally finished the Calendar, I used way too much wet stuff and had to keep waiting for it to dry - sigh!!!!
This is how it looked
and after I got my hands on it!
Again photos do not do it justice, IRL it looks a lot nicer! CLICK ON THE PICS TO SEE A BIGGER IMAGE!
I used a square punch and a scalloped scissors to make the roof "tiles". All the papers are K and Company expect for the snowflake paper which is s.e.i. The icicles are from a £2:00 Christmas Decoration pulled to pieces. I used opal dust to give the impression of frost, and a snow writer on the edges for ice.
I have used a lot of glitter, well it is a Christmas decoration after all, you read right, this is not for the girls, this is never going to be used the way it is supposed to be, Grinch I know, but too much blood, sweat, tears and gluing my fingers together went in to this, lol!!!! I had told Aimee that I was making it for them to open, so she kept asking which number was she going to open! I told her that everything would fall apart if it was used properly and that I will buy them the usual Advent Calendars, Aimee being Aimee didn't create a fuss and said "yes mum I think you are right it is too beautiful to use", that little lady sure knows how to pull at my heartstrings!!!!
Anyways, all of the embellishments on the drawers were bought from Netto about 2 years ago, and I saved them for the perfect thing, as you do!
The chimney took me the longest as I wasn't sure how to decorate it!!!
