Inch box Advent Calendars

 This cute little calendar was designed by Brenda Quintana and it really struck my fancy. It is created using DSP from the Letters to Santa pkg and the 25 and Counting stamp set that is in the current Mini.  Accessories are silver brads, Cherry Cobbler Quilted Ribbon and the 1" Square, Decorative label and the petal Card punches. Th box measures approx 5 5/8" square and the entire project is about 11 inches tall.
 Here is a side view of the box with one of the "drawers" opened. The drawers will hold small treats such as 1-2 Hershey's Kisses, candy. I have created 2 of this style for our grand daughter and nephew. In each drawer is a small candy and a joke for each day leading up to Christmas.
A close up of the front shows the ink colors used; Pool Parth, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Early Espresso.

I created a grown up version of the box for my mother and mother-in-law using the Christmas Lodge stamp set. The images are stamped in Early Espresso and Cherry Cobbler and are embellished with the Dazzling Details to give some bling and sparkle to the snow.

Thanks for coming by,
