Let's Bokeh in the Snow - Lawn Fawn Sept inspiration week

Hi there!
Welcome to another day of Lawn Fawn inspiration! Today is the turn of a paper collection: Let's Bokeh in the Snow. A pretty and basic collection with stripes and bokeh patterns in blue, red, green and cream.

I decided to make an Advent Calendar with this collection using just the green and red papers and mixing them with kraft and white cardstock. I've been wanting to make an Advent Calendar for years but I always thought that it'd be a lot of work.

This time, having the new Pillow Box die on my hands and with the idea of keeping it simple (no coloring, for example) I decided to give it a try.
Now I'm super happy with my calendar and I'm going to use it and fill it with several surprises and candy. It was easy to make but I must confess that it took me more than expected. The hardest thing is to decide the "design" of each box, I repeated almost all designs twice but anyways, there are 24 boxes!! So, if you're planning to make one, you have here some ideas to smooth the process :)
