Hi there, hope your Halloween was fantastic and now that it's over let's move on to a brand new holiday!!! I've always wanted an advent calendar that you could put little trinkets or ideas for something to do on that day in. I happened upon this inexpensive chipboard one at Hobby Lobby and picked it up as fast as my hot little hands would carry it home. :)
The great thing about the Wonder collection for me is that it isn't "cute". I think it is sophisticated and I love that the colors are rich and although red and green they're not outdated in any way.
This advent calendar can be proudly displayed where my children can take turns pulling out each day's box and examining the contents.
I created the numbers in MSWord and printed them on a piece of paper from the collection. I also used a one inch circle punch to cut out the grips before attaching the paper to the fronts.
Adding Stickles here and there on the patterns, word stickers and paper pieced embellies made it come together so nicely. Hope your holidays are filled with joy and love.
