Love the template and tutorial on the previous post but don’t have a lot of time to do all the cutting and scoring?
I’ve a few extra sets of this Little Mr Robot Advent calendar for sale. You receive 24 numbered bodies and 24 heads, pre cut and pre-scored!
All you have to do is fold them, apply glue or double sided tape and add the presents.
I’m selling them for 40 chf (43 US$) inclusive of postage! If you’d like a set just click here add your payment and shipping information and I’ll have them shipped off to you within 2 – 3 working days. Read more
I’m running three ateliers (a minimum of 2 and a maximum 5 people at each):
On Friday the 23rd of November at 2:30pm to 4:30pm.
On Saturday the 24th at 3:00pm to 5:00pm
And on the 24th at 10:00am to 12:00pm for children with help/ supervision from their parents.
They’re held in English as my conversational french is not great and would mean you’d be frustrated and we’d still be there 5 hours later
For 50chf you get a pre-cut template and access to all the required materials for you to assemble your calendar. As well as access to art supplies (paints, pastels, pencils etc) for you to decorate it and 24 chocolates to put in your calendar (or to eat if you’ve got other little gifts in mind!).
Afternoon tea is also provided.I’ll be there to help you put them together and to provide aid wherever needed.If you’re interested, please contact me via email at email@example.com or via the contact form on this site.
Information about the atelier for children (with parental supervision and assistance provided).
The bottom tray and inserts are already assembled. This means the children get to decorate the top and sides of their calendar and to fill them with their choice of chocolate/ lollies. I’ll do the final steps so that they depart with a complete calendar
I’d intended to do this project whilst we were on holidays. I know, I know… the best laid plans of mice and men. My plans went awry the moment I received the latest Frankie magazine in the mail the day before I was to depart.
I ended up spending all the time I’d intended to do embroidery, reading, painting my nails and reading some more!
But ultimately it worked out for the best as both Husband and I came home with the flu and this gave me something to do whilst I was moping on the couch!
I’m quite happy with the final result. What do you think?
One of my friends saw this quote written on a gift tag some time ago and fell in love with it. But was not so in love with the pink puppy dog that was included below the quote. This lead to the request for me to reinterpret it!
As we have oft discussed that when it comes to European wines I am completely obtuse and pick the bottle by how fabulous the label is; I felt it was quite apt and printed off a few extra to attach to bottles I’m unsure of!
If you’d told me 18 months ago that my ‘day job’ would involve last minute painting and branding of a 6 month olds t-shirt and onesie for the Prix de Lausanne I’d have scoffed. But here I am, and I’m loving it!
It turns out that either my cutter/ plotter needs new blades (that won’t arrive until next week) or it just hates vintage dictionary paper. Either way it requires me to cut 50 envelopes by hand.
This is going to require another coffee!
