Another fortnight, another challenge and at Try It On Tuesdays we’d like to see something handmade or home made, perhaps a gift, home decor, wall art or other item that you have made yourself.

I decided to make a tag advent calender – I didn’t quite appreciate how much work this would turn out to be!!

Still it was mainly die cutting the baubles as I couldn’t embellish the 12 double sided tags very much as they had to fit in the box – they do – JUST!! It’s hard to see but there is a little slot in front of the box so that you can change the tag day by day. I have to fess up the template is by Craftwork Cards so no great design work on my part.

Had great fun using up my crimbo papers (I do seem to have quite a collection) but was glad to get it finished! Now we’d like to see your projects so to add your link and catch up with he rest of the DT join us at the TiOT blog.
