A few months ago I bought a Kaiser Craft advent calendar kit ( or two ), and I finally took the plunge to put it together. While the initial prep work of painting, cutting, and pasting is time consuming, the final project is worth the time and effort, don't you think!!!
The paper I used on this advent is from Kaiser, while the embellishments are all from my stash. The deer is a Tim Holtz die, and the trees are from a local craft store.
Here's a couple of close ups of the details -
Now I'm off to finish another calendar with a totally different look - keep watching for photos of that version.
