hi there,

As mentioned in the title, I made this -->http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=132553.0 post a few years ago. Well, I thought it was time for a new advent calendar this year when I found a big CUBE of foam!! Now, I don't this one is QUITE as fancy as the one from before, and that's because I literally decided to start this project 5 days before it needed to be done (these five days were during finals as well. lol)

So I learned a few things while doing this such as:
1) it will look a lot better if you have more than a week
2) my recently acquired dremel tool made cutting the foam ten million times easier (on my first calendar, i was in a dorm room and literally only had a dull pumpkin carving knife)
3) dremel tool + foam block = confetti!

note: I only made 16 box places on this advent calendar because my bf and I are only spending that much of december before christmas together.

now on to pics!

-I made these little boxes. I made my own box pattern because I hated all the ones online. each box is approx 1.5 x 1.5in


- then put them in their little cubbies!


- top view


now a couple of process photos:

-first, draw on your boxes. if duplicating this on a cube it is IMPORTANT to leave a margin slightly larger than the depth of your boxes. otherwise your openings will cut into each other.


- then use your dremel tool (or knife or whatever) to excavate the cubby holes


-(which then creates green confetti!!)


-finally, cover your cube faces with paper and cut out your windows [or cover however you want]

after that, i painted the inside of the boxes so they would be dark, but you could do whatever.

anyway....enjoy!

@ sminto

i'm sure you could definitely make squares small enough to have circle doors...or even rectangles with oval doors? i'm sure square doors would still look really cool...like squares of varying sizes

mine didnt have to lie down...it sat upright and the circles stayed closed except for this one hole that had a heavy thing inside.
