Hi all, hope you are managing to get some crafty time!
Todays post is to show you an Advent Calendar tower that I made as a gift for my parents. The box drawer design is a tutorial from Pootles Papercraft , Sam Macdonald aka Pootles.
I used the box drawer to make 25 individual compartments and adhered them together to form the tower.
I used a colour palette of soft Golds and ivory. I wanted to add lots of snowflakes and used die cuts from my collection. The brads are the Antique brads by Stampin ‘up! and I used them for the drawer pulls.
I also used word dies and fancy square die cut outs to layer the embellishments upon. the word dies and the bow dies are also by Stampin’ Up!.
The card I used for the box bases are two Gold tones of Centura Pearl cardstock. The drawers themselves are made from a First Edition Paper stack called Gilded Winter which is beautiful.
I added simple but festive embellishments over the drawers as well as the ledges made by stacking the Drawers.
I also added a base that I made from chipboard covered in centura pearl and decorated the back of the tower.
I decorated the edge of the base with a faux pearl necklace which I had bought from Primark and cut into. I also added lace, braided ribbon trim and a central cluster of glittered leaves, machine cut leaves and faux flowers.
I hope you like this project as much as I enjoyed making it. Please ask any questions and leave any comments as I enjoy receiving your opinions and feed back.
Thanks again and Happy crafting 🙂
