Twelfth Day of Christmas – Window Box Advent Calendar

Today’s post is exciting to me! I got to work on the base for my advent calendar and have finally begun the process of assembling it! As such I will be switching around the order of the posts a bit to reflect the order in which the days will be added to the “tree” from base to top. The Twelfth Day of Christmas window box is the last box in the bottom row.

The Twelfth Day of Christmas window box features a simple design using burlap trim, pear pizzazz shimmer ribbon, and rhinestone basic embellishments.

With box number twelve complete I am now able to start assembling my advent calendar on the base. I made the base for this calendar using 3 Paper Pumpkin boxes and one piece of 12 x 12 Chipboard from a Memories and More Page Pack.

Each box is wrapped in a sheet of 12 x 12 Merry Music DSP.  I used a glue gun to hot glue all three together. The chipboard I cut in half and hot glued both pieces to the bottom of the wrapped boxes to help provide stability across the joints.

The embellishment process for the base began by wrapping the 7/8 stripped ribbon around the entire outside of the boxes and  tying it  in a big bow. Tying this ribbon tightly also helps to stabilize the 3 box base. I added 4 sprigs to the bow and will add another embellishment in the center but am undecided on what.

Here is the base and the first few bottom boxes. I’m getting quite excited to see it all starting to come together now!

Eleventh Day Of Christmas – Window Box Advent Calendar

The eleventh day of Christmas window box features some vellum die cut snowflakes made using the Seasonal Layers dies, along with the mini gold sequin trim. I just love the black and white plaid pattern on this designer series paper!

The snowflakes were cut from vellum using the Colourful Seasons thinlits and the mini gold sequin trim gives it some extra shimmer.

Ninth Day of Christmas – Window Box Advent Calendar

Is anyone else getting impatient for this project to be done?? Haha! I have been working on several at a time and I’m trying to hold back and not post them all at once. I’m getting excited to see how this all comes together at the end. I thought about building it and then finishing the individual boxes afterwards, but then I realized that it would be difficult to photograph all the boxes that way. So…. Here is my ninth day of Christmas window box. I kept this one simple and used the new everyday label punch, vellum and the metal rimmed pearls.

Seventh Day of Christmas – Window Box Advent Calendar

My seventh day of Christmas window box features the Eclectic Layers Thinlits and mini gold sequin trim.  It is a lighter design than some of the previous boxes. I think this will bring some balance to the finished project.

You guys…. it is getting tougher to come up with combos for these boxes and I still have 21 days to go! I should have ordered the foil snowflakes and Year of Cheer embellishments. They would have gone perfectly with this project! Let’s see if I’m able to pull this off! 😉

Eighth Day of Christmas -Window Box Advent Calendar

The eighth day of Christmas window box features Stampin’ Up!’s 7/8″ striped ribbon, metallic foil doilies and Bow Builder punch. This was my first play with the bow builder punch. It made it incredibly easy to make this beautiful paper bow using only paper and mini glue dots! I will definitely be adding this to my rotation for future papercrafting projects. As this will be an outer box in the final design, I also used the stitched shape squares to decorate three of the window box sides.

Sixth Day of Christmas – Window Box Advent Calendar

Getting back to my 28 Days of Christmas Blog Series today. For the sixth day of Christmas window box I used the dazzling diamonds glitter paper and the tree thinlits from the Card Front Builder dies. The Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper was punched out using the starburst punch. I added the silver ribbon and mini black sequin trim for extra shimmer.

Third Day of Christmas – Window Box Advent Calendar

This is the third post in my 28 Days of Christmas Blog Series. In case you missed the earlier posts, I am using Stampin’ Up!’s window box die to create an advent calendar and decorating each box differently. The final result is meant to look like like a Christmas tree! Fingers crossed! The third day of Christmas window box  continues with the silver theme of the last box. It uses the new mini ornaments from Stampin’ Up!’s  upcoming 2017 holiday catalogue.  I also used a wood embellishment from the touches of nature wood elements. The designer series paper is punched out using the pretty label punch.

Second Day of Christmas – Window Box Advent Calendar

The Second Day of Christmas window box has a completely different look to the first. If you missed yesterday’s post, be sure to check it out!

I went with a black and silver combo and used the Bunch Of Banners Framelits on the Merry Music specialty designer series paper. The black shimmer ribbon, rhinestones, silver metallic thread and silver foil add lots of shimmer to this window box! All the foil numbers on the boxes will be popped out using mini stampin’ dimensionals.
