Hi, there! Welcome to Day 4 of the RemARKable Stampers Holiday Madness Blog Tour! My project today features the Jolly Bingo Bits stamp set in the Holiday Mini Catalog. I fell in love with this set the first time I saw it! There are 24 images in this set -- perfect for an Advent Calendar! So, I made these little boxes as an Advent Calendar. What do you think? I will put all 24 boxes in a basket, and we will take one out each day. Of course, there will be chocolate of some sort in the boxes! (Hershey's Miniatures fit perfectly in the boxes -- Don't ask me how I know this! The hard part is saving enough to put IN the boxes!) The best part is, these boxes can be re-used next year so you can keep this as a family tradition. I used the new Scallop Squares Duo Bigz Die to cut the scallop squares you see around the images. I used the smaller of the 2 scallop squares. You only need a 2" x 2" piece of Designer Series Paper for this size scallop. It is a little larger than the scallop square punch.
