Advent Calendar and GIVEAWAY!

As promised I am back with my second handcrafted Advent Calendar of the season.  You can see the first one, made for Crafty Ribbons, here.

This one uses supplies from SpiegelMom Scraps, Crafty Ribbons, older supplies from my stash and a handy cardboard box!

Each of the 24 glassine bags have been carefully numbered and decorated and more importantly filled with a little craft treat!

They've then been mixed up and displayed in a converted box just waiting for December's arrival.

There is a lovely mix of goodies from some of my favourite shops; like for ever, SpiegelMom Scraps, Shimmerz, Chloe Suzanne Designs, Crafty Ribbons, Derwent... all perfect for a crafter or scrapbooker.

And I am giving it away to one of my Instagram followers!  If you'd like to be in the draw please comment on the photo on Instagram (here) and follow me.  You can spread the love and tag your friends too - each tag will count as another entry.  I'm also aware that some of my loyal blog followers are not Instagrammers, and I don't want to leave them out... drop me an email at beadsbuttonsandbirds at live dot co dot uk and I'll include your name in the Santa hat.  (Contest closes on 14th November to allow shipping in time for December.  Contest open world wide; contest not sponsored or endorsed by any companies; I will gain proof of postage and will not be held accountable for the parcel once left with the Post Office.)

Supplies from Crafty Ribbons: Advent Number Ribbon, Organza Swiss Dot, Satin 3mm, Bling Edge 3mm, Grosgrain in 3mm and 6mm, Red Mini Hearts, bells.

Supplies from SpiegelMom Scraps: Glassine Bags, Tags and Doilies, Felt Die Cuts, Burlap String, Mini Pegs.
