Advent Boxes!

As soon as I saw these lovely little boxes I thought of Advent!!!  When made up they measure approx 5cm cubed and are very sturdy.  I love the way that the scalloped top folds down into the box for closing, though you do need to glue this fold for extra strength. 

I have painted the scallops and then used glittery paper for the rest.  As I was going for a country look they have been strung with string and kraft card used for the number tags.  You can still open them strung like this but they would look fantastic hung individually on the tree. They also stack very well so you could have an Advent Mountain haha   Here they are in all their glory, though its tricky to get a 'nice' pic of them altogether hahaha!

Oh and wouldn't these make brilliant favour boxes or just boxes for that special little present?  Thanks for taking a look today, HUGS, Karen x
