As you can probably guess, this is one of these Kaisercraft beyond the page calendars kits and I had great fun putting it together.
Both my grandchildren love the song of the 12 days of Christmas, so it seemed perfect.
Below some close ups:
The two little gnomes are supposed to be Santa's helpers, they are made with pipecleaners and bits of felt. The tree was cut with a Tim Holtz die, the two little sacks were made from calico, dyed with Distress spray stains, and the baskets I still had from the days I used to make dollshouse dolls many moons ago.
The roof bit was decorated with some Calico Craftparts that I still had in my stash from the days I was on their design team, all the other bits and pieces are part of the paper collection.
I had great fun decorating all the little drawers with bits and pieces from the papers
Another piece from Calico Craftparts, - it's hard to see from the main picture as it is hiding behind the little banner. I left all of the Craftparts completely unaltered as I like how the dark wood contrasts with the colourful papers.
Well, that's it pretty much. This was quite a bit of work, but I had great fun with it, even though I had to give up on my 10 day tag challenge, but hey ho, so be it.
Just a little word of warning, this kit came without any instructions what so ever and is actually quite tricky to put together. I could also not find any instructions anywhere online. Kaiser have a very brief video of a similar one, but as it is not the same, it was not much use, and without the help of my dear hubby, who is very clever with constructions like this I would have been totally lost!
Anyway, that's it from me for today, - have a good week and see you next time...
Thanks for your visit like always!
