Advent box

Hi all is it cold enough for you? fortunately here on the west coast of England
we haven't had any snow yet ( my kids are praying for it though).
I like the snow but only from the comfort of indoors.

Phew! it's taken me a week to make from scratch but here it is
finally my Advent Box

I saw this in the first issue of the Magnolia Ink magazine and thought
wow, so i got busy and decided to make it before Advent starts.

Although i have already bought the kids chocolate Advent calender's
but never mind I'll fill it full of hero's just for ME yum! yum!
well it is Christmas.

I'm going to enter it into Sirstampalot's challenge this month
The theme is Christmas Traditions.
So from now on this will be our Christmas Tradition
filling it full of chocolate for Advent.

I'll not go into the In's and outs but you have to make 24
draws and group them in 3's and glue together.
The papers i have used are a mixture from Bo bunny and Joanna Sheen's
Christmas CD ROM.
Stamps are Magnolias of course and they are coloured
with Copic markers.
I have used beads for the draw handles and the
numbers are from a stamp set from
papermania, cut out and coloured.
I Inked around the edges with fired Brick distress ink.
The top and base are chipboard squares covered in some
handmade paper i bought that has gold thread through it.
The ribbon is some Christmas ribbon i found in my stash I've
had it years can't remember where i got it from.

Oh well thanks for looking today and keep warm.
