Petite Purse Magnetic Advent calendar

 


As you may know already, Paperific was on the weekend at the showgrounds and here is the project I designed for our Stampin' Up! stand at the show. It was really hard to photograph but I gave it my best shot. You may remember my post on the petite purse die that I did as a product showcase for the recent Heartfelt Stampin' Up! Event. Well I took that die one step further and created this Magnetic Advent Calendar. It took ages but I am happy with how it turned out. I have used lots of new things on this project, many from the new Holiday Catalogue. Besides the Petite Purse Die, I have used the new Peekaboo Frames Die, the Snow Festival DSP, the Snow Flurry Die, Silver Glimmer Paper and heaps of punches. What worked perfectly for this was the 25 & Counting Stamp set, I just love that set so much. I had to hunt down an extra large baking tray to fit them all on :) They have a little magnet on the back to hold them on plus it makes it easy to remove them to fill them with yummy treats. I am considering running this as a class or putting together a kit so if you are interested please let me know so I can decide if its something people want.

 
I used my crop-a-dile to punch two holes in the tray and tied some of the new Natural Cotton Ribbon through them so you can hang it up.
 
Thanks for visitng today :)

This is great Felicity. A great way to show off many products. I made mine before we got the new catalogue :) I think I'm going to try this one out too :) Thanks for sharing

This would look great in a picture frame with magnetic sheet in it instead of glass. You could distress or paint the frame whatever colour and even cover the magnetic sheet in fabric!!!

Looks great.
