Advent Calander 2011

As I started to put my Christmas decorations away today, I decided to post pictures
of the advent calander I made this year for myself. Yep you read that right I made this
 The Advent Calander box is from Kaiser Craft and the paper collection (I think it's called)
 Christmas Past is also Kaiser Craft, there 2010 collection.

 The advent calander is a pressed board and has to be assembled, along with  the
25 little  chipboard boxes.
I have to admit I did enjoy making this project.

Album Purses

 I purchased these wooden purses at Michael's, painted them black and altered
 them with papers.
Each purse has a matching  photo abbum that I decorated with flowers, feathers,
ribbon and lots of bling.  The albums are aprox 4x5" .
No two are alike, each has it's own personality and flair.
To make the photo albums, I photo copied the inside of the purse to get the exact measurement. From this templete I then cut out 8 pages for each album and used the new decorative duct tape to bind them.

I was able to find papers and ribbon at Michaels that matched the duct tape nicely.

It took me approximately 2 hrs to complete each purse.  (thats not including painting).
This project was alot of fun to do.  I will admit it was more time consuming than
I thought it would be, but than again I did make 8.
