Belles and Whistles Day 16 Advent Giveaway


Morning everyone!
Welcome to the 16th Day of the Belles and Whistles advent giveaway! I decided to share my matchbox advent calendar using the Christmas hearth image. This project is actually pretty easy and lots of fun!! I used retired SU wintergreen papers with sage and artichoke cardstock. The drawer pulls are flower spacers I attached with crystal effects. Each little box holds a Hershey's miniature. I used my snowflake die to punch out some snowflakes for the sides. I first embossed them with iridescent ice then added either a pearl or rhinestone to the center.
The card on top is my first attempt at an easel card! Another really fun and easy project! I colored the image with copics and then sprayed with shimmer mist. Then added a bow. The card will hold a gift card as this advent calendar is on its way to my soon to be sister in law as her Christmas gift.
Be sure to check out the Belles and Whistles blog for you chance at a fabulous goodie bag:)
