And it’s time for advent calendar number three! Don’t worry, this is the last of the advent calendars. I decorated this one for my sister and her fiancée.
With this one, I used a lot of the Back to Basics Modern Christmas card set by Dovecraft – love the greens and browns in that set! Also, more of the gold glitter tape and numbers – they really have come in useful this Christmas! I used some twine for the press handles and also used my new mini heart punch. Oh. and I used some brown and gold ink pads to add a slightly distressed look to patches and make things blend in a bit.
I meant to take a before and after picture along with the different stages but I always seem to forget to. So here’s an almost before photo!
If you’re looking for a good Christmas craft to make, I think these are great. They’re pretty easy to decorate with just some card and glue and you can make them look however you want. The wooden calendars that I bought each cost around €23 so price isn’t too bad either, especially when you consider it’s something you can use for many, many years.
