Advent Calendar Gift

Last year I made my Mum an Advent Calendar using tiny jam jars and lots of Doodlebug Designs Christmas Papers. This year I refilled these jars for her and made a new Calendar for my sister. 

For this box I found a pine craft and painted it with pale pink acrylic paint. Then I decorated it with papers and stickers from Kaisercraft's Sparkle collection.

I used a foiled paper called Shiny to cover the sides of the box, trees on the outside and the black on the inside.

I placed the jars in rows of five in the box, then measured the gap this left and with greyboard and duck tape I made a panel to fill the gap and stop the jars from rolling about. This also gave me a secret place to hide a gift. I covered the top of this panel with the snowflake side of Luster paper.

I also cut some of the quotes from the Luster paper and from the Sticker Pad to add decoration. The pad also provided other additional images, numbers and words.

The jars were filled with some favourite sweets.

Hope you are enjoying the box of treats Sylvie! Happy Christmas.
Thanks for looking.
