Kaisercraft Advent Calendar – 3 ways

The Kaisercraft Advent Calendar (SB2066) is one of our most popular Christmas Beyond-the-Page projects to date!!

And why wouldn’t it be???

Who doesn’t love counting down the days till Christmas?

Lets look at three very different ways to use this BTP from our talented Design Team!

1. Advent Calendar for Christmas, by Alicia Barry

Materials: Advent beyond the page project (SB2066), Christmas carnival papers, KC rhinestone strips, Die cut journalling tags, ric rac, KC chipboard letters, KC pink paint., stickles.


Christmas Carnival - Alicia Barry

“I love the tree patterned paper in this collection, and they seemed perfect for making dimesnsional. I decided to combine them in layers to create a free standing diorama. Accordian folded cardstock created an easy base.”

Tips:

  • Take care not to paint the tabs of the project. Doing so will -result in the pieces not fitting together easily.
  • When constructing the boxes, Apply, a strip of sticky tape to hold the box in form begore adhering a strip of pattened paper and adhering with the join at the back.
  • Consider using the opening as a shadow box to create a Christmas diorama theme, rather than doing a layout.

Although…. as Nikki and Tanya show us below, you don’t have to use the Advent Calendar just for Christmas projects!

2. Everyday Advent Calendar by Nikki Antontello

Materials: Advent Calendar, Lilac Avenue Paper Collection, Experience Rubons, Friendship Rubons, Lilac Rhinestones, Kaisercraft Paint, Foam tape, Black Gel pen, Kindy Glitz, Flower Punch & Scallop Punch

My Inspiration:

“Isabelle is your very typical little four year old girl who loves collecting little bits and pieces of everything.  She has the most vivid imagination and fills her days with adventures of  fairies and make believe.  All the little things she collects,  she then deems as some sort of wonderful magical treasure.  When I saw all the little boxes in the calendar, I knew they would make the most perfect draws for her to store her treasures in.  I chose to decorate the box in Lilac Avenue paper as they are just so very pretty and I wanted this to be a really girlie keepsake for her.  The photo was one I’d taken earlier of her in the garden, which prompted me to create a setting to suit that.  As there were lots of flowers on the paper, I didn’t have to look too far for what I could cut out and layer.  The rest of the setting I just drew and created myself.  This was such a fun piece to create….a little flight of fantasy……which Isabelle  absolutely adores!”

Tips:

  • Doodle around the edges of the boxes and cut out pieces to add definition. Highlight with some glitter.
  • Add rubons to the draws / boxes to echo the sentiment of the piece.

3. Annual Calendar & storage, by Tanya Tahir

Materials: Rewind paper collection, die cut elements, embellishmetn pack, rub ons

  4. I have a question, is everyone putting paper each of the little boxes or just the front? If you are, do you have a pattern?
    Thanks

  8. I just bought mine and am wondering how you put this thing together. I know it probably snaps together but Do you cut them apart? Any ideas?

    Thanks

  10. My sister bought me the advent calendar and we loved putting them together. She lives in Selia, Washington and I live in Roy, Utah. We searched each craft store for your products and none were located. Since she has gone home, my little dog took a liking to the advent calendar and chewed up 5 of the boxes and broke a few more. Is it possible to purchase the boxes for the advent calendar. Also I painted it white and thought that if the boxes could be purchased I could use it for a Halloween countdown and an Easter countdown. Please let me know. If you could give me any information of a craft store here in Utah that carries your products I would appreciate it. Thank you, Kathleen

  11. If you have already been operating on the web long enough, you have got likely
    heard about short article rewriters. Mostt people have no
    concept as to what rewriters are why they are required.
