Good old Pink Petticoat papers have been used for this card.

Advent card/Calender

Another weekend is upon us and I have been busy making items for a craft fair I have due in October.  Here is another Advent card/calender for you to have a look at and as requested I will put some measurements down for you :o)

1- cut 24 9.5cm x 9.5cm squares. Score 1.5cm in all around and make into a box as you would normally without a lid!

2 - Cut 24 6.5cm x 22cm pieces of card or paper(i found card made it more secure) Score 6.5cm, 8cm, 15cm and 16.5cm and wrap aournd the drawers and secure with glue(do not glue the drawer tho this piece!!)

3 - cut 6 13.5cm x 13.5cm pieces of card and sticke four drawer sections to the first layer, and another 13.5cm piec and add another 4 drawer sections and so on until they are all towered together. decorate the drawers and add brads/pearls as required. Use a 5.5" square card and create an easle card as normal and decorate then add it to the top of the tower. 

I hope this is understandable :o) The measurements are taken from a simple 4 drawer easle card I found in Quick cards made easy.
