Exploding Gift Box Advent Calendar

Dec 25, 2016 | Crafts | 0 comments

This year’s advent calendar project was so much fun! What better way to countdown to Christmas than to open a different gift box every day? It was also a great way to use up some of the leftover gift wrapping supplies from years past.

I had to pull a lot of crafty tricks out of the box (no pun intended) to make each box different from the last too. So I got to use a lot of different techniques, from painting to cut out pieces, embellishments, handmade stencils and lots of other things too.

When I got done, I repurposed it into a truly awesome Dirty Santa gift too!

Anyway, I hope ya’ll have had as much fun following along on social media as I did. Merry Christmas everyone!!
