Picture Tutorial : Christmas Village 3d Advent calendar.

I recently received the Christmas Village Seasona Mini cart and was confused about the boxes.  I hope the Provo Craft considers enclosing some added instructions to the 3d creations on their minis. I first thought they were for support of the buildings.. but they were so tiny. After a lot of trial and error I figured out how to use them. I hope this helps you.

When you cut the buildings use the same size for the boxes so they fit in the openings.  The boxes can be cut larger if you wish to use them as gift boxes, but you would need to create your own top for them.

Today I wanted to share with you my first card made with the Santa cut from Simply charmed. I love this new cartridge with all the cute images and easy layering.  Please be sure to watch the video for instruction on how I assembled the card using a sketch from Wishes. I also have a picture of the dimensional glitter I used on the beard .  If you have any questions let me know. I'm also thinking I need a new camera.. cant seem to get the focus correct.:(

when its dry.... glitter goodness.
