Here is a 3D advent box I actually made last year from an idea I got from the very 1st Magnolia Ink magazine, I`d almost forgotton about it but I brought it out to fill with goodies for my Mum, she`s always treating me at christmas so this one is for her.
The images are stamped from Creat a Scene stamps "Vintage Christmas" from Creative Expressions and I`ve used the SU " lovely as a tree " set of stamps for the backgrounds
The Papers are Magnolia from last seasons chrissy range, the numbers are cuttlebug die alphabet set " Hippy Chick " and the handles are Tim Holtz hitch fasteners which I bought from Graphacus online
The photo`s aren`t great as I took them in artificial light, it`s been so gloomy weather-wise lately it`s been hard to get a decent shot but the artificial light really makes the glitter sparkle. The glitter is glamour dust sprinkled over quickie glue pen which is a very quick, easy and fast drying method for sparkles !
For the top of the box I just stamped out the main image and slightly raised it with foam pads just to give it a bit of lift off the background, the flowers are from Calico crafts and the gold bling is from Sehlbach and Whiting.
Again, apologies for the lousy photos ! I haven`t invested in a photo light box yet but it is on my christmas list !
Thanks for stopping by my blog, bye for now and happy crafting xx
