Traditional Advent Box

     Here is a second advent calendar I made for my youngest son.  This one was done with a traditional color scheme.  His favorite drawer was the one that had a i.o.u to trade bedtimes with anyone in the family.
The papers were Creative Imagination and Cosmo Cricket.  The Embellishments have been saved and hoarded forever.  When ever I find a Christmas embellie into my Christmas box of treasure it goes until just the right project comes along.  The numbers on this are again stickers and the box was originaly colored with stazon and distress inks before I added all the paper and decorations.  I don't know what is more fun with these advent boxes, creating them or filling them.

This was entered in the the Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge Here
