Some people on TBW have contacted me to find out how I made my calendar. So here are the details.
I found this pattern originally created as a truffle box. The pattern was a tad too small for what I had in mind, so I printed it enlarged. (one pattern took about one page). I THen bought a snowflake shape cutter and a stamp that looks like little stars. I got some silver ink, and some shinny silver powder. I stamped all the bottoms and tops of the truffle box shapes, and then added the number. Glued them to create the boxes per se.
Then I cutted the snowflake shapes, and glued 2 together on a toothpick. Then I embossed them with the silver powder.
I remove the snowflakes of the boxes that we have opened already. So we know how many days till Christmas :)
