------Whoops! Wrong category... Sorry  Embarrassed

I recently obtained a much-longed-for Silhouette Cameo and have been crafting with it like a mad woman. For Christmas my daughter decides the general theme and color for decorations. This year she wants Pink, orange, and gold. Hmmmm... what can I make with my new toy??? Hours online searching for the right project and... Matchbox Advent Calendar!! (inspired by ones like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=394644.0)

My doofy daughter and I had fun choosing all the fun details that went into this project. Her favorite part is the hot pink poinsettia and I love the pretty poppies.

All the flowers are from the Silhouette store and the rest of the cut files were designed by me in Illustrator.

What a fabulous take on an advent calendar.  You get such perfect cuts with your machine. I am jealous Sad  Had mine for going on 3 years and am still learning the ins and outs of it.
