Tiny Treat Box Advent Calendar

I planned on making this project the day that John got in his accident. I've had the supplies for it just sitting on my desk, waiting for me to put it together. I finally sat down and worked on it! I used the Tiny Treat Boxes again. I used my computer to print the numbers since I have no number stamps.




It even looks cool from the back!



I used the 1/2" Circle Punch to make finger holes in the top of the boxes. Otherwise it would have been very difficult to open them!

The ribbon I used is retired. I also used retired Sticky Strip to put the boxes together, but you could use the new Tear & Tape Adhesive (#138995) on page 156 of the catalog. I actually like the new tape better, but want to use up what I have on hand.

Quick update on John: he got a call yesterday with the results of the MRI. Something is partially torn in his left shoulder. They want him to see an Orthopedic doctor and he may need to have another MRI to get a better view of the tear. And he finally got a call from the insurance company- the truck is totaled. Now they need to work out the final numbers. John is trying to decide if he wants to order a new truck or buy a used one.
