Candy Wrapper Advent Calendar # 24

Punch Art Advent CalendarI had a larger chocolate to put in number 24, so made an extended version of the Candy Wrapper Die so that I could fit it in. My daughter said when we were making the punch art that she would like presents on the last box. I had wanted to include a train, but the other boxes were too short - so a present carrying train was the combined idea for the last box!

The presents are just rectangles of card, glittered with gold using Heat'n'stick powder, and wrapped with short lengths of ribbon and a bow stuck on top.

The engine and trucks are made using the two Tag punches, with some small circles for wheels. I used the Word Window punch to create the train window.

I've added this to the list of step-by-steps to do after Christmas!

Wishing all my blog readers a very happy Christmas! See you in the New Year.

Look forward to seeing the how all the train was made. All great ideas that I have bookmarked to use next Christmas.
Hoping 2012 will be a year full of crafting fun.
