The base of the calendar is an older Kaisercraft kit, that you assemble and then decorate with your choice of paper, ink and embellishments. After painting all of the pieces I choose dp from Simple Stories Cozy Christmas collection to decorate all of the boxes and the sides of the calendar. All of the edges were inked with Versafine Vintage Sepia, then the fun began. I used a mix of embellishments to decorate the individual boxes including ribbon, brads, charms, buttons, Tim Holtz Idea-ology Countdown Charms, while the center scene was built with Tim Holtz bottle brush trees, and a bird bath ornament. To finish off the scene I used Art Institute Clear Glue to add Floracraft Twinklets Diamond Dust throughout to imitate snow.
