Tando Advent White Christmas Box by Art Angel


This is a very simple yet very pretty Advent Box and would make a fabulously magical gift or keepsake for a child's room. Using the papers of your choice don't forget these are suitable for all times and occasions throughout the year not just Advent 

Your Advent Kit creates two components, and outer box and a inner sliding drawer

The precision cut tabs and notches makes it very easy to snap together just secure with a good pva glue

Lay all your pieces out before gluing so that you’re confident that everything is in the right place

This will be your drawer front

Start but giving both components a base coat of Decoart Lace Chalk Paint

I chose to use some Christmas papers from LaBlanche to decorate my box but you could use anything from your stash, whether thats Christmas, birthdays, weddings or any other papers for any occasion

I cut a panel slightly smaller than the drawer front and inked around the edges using Walnut Stain Distress Oxide and adhered to the box using DecoArt Matte Medium

I repeated the same process for one side of the drawer

And then the other

I also cut a panel to fit on the inside back wall of the drawer

I used DecoArt metallic Lustre in Iced Espresso to finish off all edges

I then moved onto the box that the drawer will sit in and cut panels to cover all inside surfaces matching up the design to create a cohesive scene, remember to ink your edges with the oxide before sticking down

Do the same for the top of the box

And again for the sides

Like i said simple but oh so effective, perfect way to let your beautiful papers speak for themselves it is a brilliant way to showcase papers that you have a hard time cutting in to!!!

Look out for loads more inspiration from the wonderful Tando Team x x

I used
LaBlanche papers
