ADVENT-TIME - 2 boxes to peep at a Red and a Pink box

So....... I thought I should post my Advent Wreath box - All covered in Lush Craftwork Cards Christmas glitter-pad-candy-cane papers and filled with their divine mini blooms and their must have wreath x

Have you got a cuppa and a comfy seat cos your in for a long piccy fest (not too many words though - phew!!!)
After inking up all the raw edges and corners of the box and draws I spritz with mists and cover with patterned papers  

The inside and outside edges of the box are covered with patterned papers, distressed, inked and then stamped with the amazing flourish from the  elegant stamp collection X - gives a real vintage finish x

The candy-cane-christmas-wreath-kit (makes 6 wreaths) or wreath-kit-christmas (makes 3 wreaths)
After creating the VERY festive wreath I sat it upon the Cinnamon sticks and Cheesecloth and then went to town with the spritzing and glitzing X
Christmas is comming........

Everyone's fav at the moment - the 'Curly Twirly' bloom fully frosted

Mini blooms from the krafty-christmas-goodybag mixed with Kraft  mini blooms and sprinkled with fine and rock glitter for a festive frosty feel x

Divine mini blooms from the krafty-christmas-goodybag - are a sheer  joy to create and divine eye-candi
Talking of CANDI - I've used it to stamp the typewriter stamp numbersw onto - so I know what day to open which draw to peep and eat the hidden choccy delight X
And you can see the CANDI dangling from the ribbon - I punched holes through them so they look like washers x Make for great door handles!!!

I love using quirky finds like this vintage zipper with gorgeous luxury-laces
I love the out of the ordinary

Tarnished hearts and natural lace looks sooo 'Victoriana' 

YeY!!!!  LOVE chipboard-tickets all inked up and ribbled - sooo on trend 

Toggles and ribbons make for natty door knobs 

A vintage zipper - pull 'n' natural-twine - soo made for each-other 

A really over-sized vintage button and the unruly festive twine work a treat together 

And this stunning 'Scandinavian style' vintage button also works a treat with the unruly off white twine
