Christmas Kit - Advent Calendar & ideas - part 2| Loredana Bucaria


Happy Monday everyone!
How are you?
How will you start your creative week? I'm preparino some advent calendars this week. I have thought to make a surprise for my mother and for some friends, other than my children! So this is the final week, where ideas need to come and the calendars need to be ready for the next week! 

I can't believe November it's almost finished argh! Please stop the time!
And you? Are you preparing the advent calendar this year?

Today I would like to share the second part of my project and many tips I have thought about lately.

Usually I hold my calendar on a structure that changes year after year, this year I have thought about a wooden box for my children to close and to open each day with a key that the elf will bring with him.

For my mother, that is the recipient of this Advent Calendar I have thought to put everything in a white box and let her chose the card or the little package or the bag with candies she wants, so completely free with no numbers. 

This same calendar can decorate your halls, your fireplace and when I have taken the pics of my project I have understood that it would be a great and so festive decoration just adding also some black and white pictures of the past Christmas times.

Some TIPS:
  • use 3x4 journaling cards to close a little kraft bag
  • create some little packages with dies 
  • decorate with just little touches paper bags for your candies
  • add pictures and lights
  • mix different kinds of embellishments from the clear stickers to the chipboards
  • alternate packages and cards
  • use twines, ribbons and wool thread 
  • watercolors are perfect to play with the gorgeous Studio Forty stamps

Remember the little details let make a little project so magic !

Hope you have a wonderful creative week and that this project inspires you to create your own advent calendar! I am so excited and can't wait to have all the little gifts to donate it to my mom!

Have a wonderful day
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Love, Lory
