nutcracker advent calendar for cut it up challenge

Entering My nutcracker advent calendar into the Its the countdown challenge no.32 My granddaughter loves nutcrackers so I decided to figure out how to make one for her to make counting down to Christmas to be fun. she loves it.  I used tbb&more cart
I used the box cut on pg 119 because you can put it so it will open to the front. I cut 44 boxes and assembled by hot glueing together. the numbers are cut from scrap paper I glued the entire nutcracker on a music box for a little extra cuteness. He looks so cool on my fireplace. He is about 2 ft tall when finished. Have any questions on how to make this just email me I will try to explain it better. hugs
