Hi! Tina here today with my 2014 version of an Advent Calendar.
Even though my children are grown and the excitement of the daily opening of an Advent Calendar is not what it was when they were little, I still enjoy creating a calendar each year, using a slightly different idea.
Supplies:Joyous:North Pole paper,Carols paper,Mixed Bag, Tiny Alpha Stickers, Gems; Misc:Envelopes: Stampington Ink: Distress Ink Adhesive: Tombow Die Cut Machine: Silhouette Cameo Binder Ring: 7gypsies Ribbon: Tim Holtz Distress Stain
For my 2014 Christmas Advent Calendar, I created a simple Tag Calendar, using a die-cut tag shape.
For each day, I adhered a glassine envelope to the die-cut tag, then adhered the number tag on top of the envelope.
I embellished each number tag with Joyous Gems and aged the envelope with Distress Ink. I printed the daily activity on a strip of paper and 'hid' them in the glassine envelope.
The entire calendar was held together with a large binder ring. After each day's activity is complete, the tag can be flipped to the back, revealing the next day. How fun, right?
I am already looking for new ideas for my 2015 Advent Calendar. Please share your calendar ideas with us!
Thank you for stopping by!
