I totally played with the NiNi 'Party Pieces' papers leftover from the 'merry little Christmas' Workshop kit and came up with this! Lots of sparkle and glitter - so if you want to do the same to the 'merry little Christmas' project on Saturday be sure to bring your Stickles or glitter glue! I'll also share the pattern for the cute little milk cartons...
There are still a few spots available for Saturday's class, so if you feel like coming along, please see the information page and contact us ASAP at niniconconcepts＊gmail.com (change the ＊to @) !
実は今回のWorkshopの作品 "merry little Christmas" のサンプルを作った残りのNiNi paper 'party pieces'でこんな作品を作ってみました！ ・・・ミルクボックス型のアドベントカレンダーです！ 今週土曜のWorkshopに参加予定の方、ご希望があればこのミニミルクボックスのパターンをお教えします。Workshopのエクストラとして、まさにSB三昧で楽しんでいただきます。
First of all, it's big - at about 8" tall, it could even be the size of a real Christmas present! Just imagine it under your Christmas tree or adding to your Christmas decor...
Plus there is LOTS of room for photos from standard 'L' size (3.5 x 5) to mini size! It also includes 24 different kinds of pockets for photos and/or journaling so you could use it like Ali Edwards' December Daily or Shimelle's Journal Your Christmas to record not just Christmas itself but the whole run up to the festive season...
And there are lots of ways to customise it and add your own creativity. Love sparkle and bling? Add your own mists, Stickles or glitter... Want to add even more photos? Create an extra mini album to fit in one or more of the pockets... I'll be sharing these ideas and more in the workshop.
Sorry for the hiatus in blogging but my back is still causing problems and I've been having to have lots of tests to try to find out the problem...In between visits to the hospital, however, I did manage to find the time to come up with a little (or should I say rather large - it's 8 inches tall!) something for all those special Christmas memories...

3. Decorate as desired. ( I inked all the edges with Tsukineko Memento Ink in Rose Bud and adhered the bottom 'flap' before embossing just the front of my card using my Cuttlebug and Swiss Dots Embossing Folder. I then glued on two flat-backed 6mm pearls - the kind used for decorating cellphones etc which I found in my local craft shop - for the snaps at the bottom. I also used the same Hero Arts stamp as before.)
