A Festive Advent Calendar

December is already starting to fly by. Have you created an advent calendar for this year? If not, it's not too late! We have a special step-by-step tutorial to share today to create your own advent calendar! 


This beauty was made by our own Melodee Cloud. She created it with our "Festive" collection... which is perfect for making advent calendars of any size or shape! 

You will need:

A blank advent calendar

Festive 6x6 bundle & sticker sheets

Scissors, adhesive, ink

1. Start by Spray Painting the Advent Calendar

2. Cut 24 pieces from the 6x6 Bundle to 1 3/4 x 1 3/4.

3. Lay out the square pieces in a pleasing order


4. Use the Number sheet in the 6x6 pad along with number and letter stickers


5. Use stickers, ink, pop dots and a little twine to decorate each box front


Supplies Used: Festive 6x6 pad, 12x12 details sticker sheet,  12x8 elements sticker sheet,  adhesive & ink

  10. Awesome project. I have been unable to find a blank advent calendar, like the one you used. I'm wondering if you would please tell me where you found yours and possibly the brand. Your help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
