Christmas Advent Calendar III

     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.

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!

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.

  1. Hi Emma! I just love your advent calendars. I have an unfinished one that I have kept for several years now. My kid likes the Lego ones so I don’t know if we would use it, but now I’m inspired.

    I was asked to participate in a 12 Days of Christmas blogging challenge and I have to nominate 3 other bloggers. So, if you want to participate and you get a chance: https://fishbowlfortune.wordpress.com/2015/12/14/12-days-of-christmas-blogging-challenge/ . Cheers!

    1. I think I’m the same xD I just love the greens and browns. Plus I got to find another use for ink pads – you can get some really nice distressed looks with an ink pad and a paint brush!
