Advent Calendar

December 2, 2011 at 5:43 pm 1 comment

My sister is staying with us and wanted to make an advent calendar for her boys back home.  SO feeling crafty I went looking on the internet for inspiration and found this origami advent calendar.

So inspired I grabbed my 6×6 papers and folded into four – so they were a bit smaller than the ones on the website but ended up very cute and just the right size.

We stamped them from 1 to 24 and then arranged them in a diamond and Christmas tree shape on card

We then attached them with glue dots and I punched holes in the side of the card and tied together with ribbon.  We then stamped the front (should have done this BEFORE attaching the pockets but oh well)

Here it is standing up open

Now closed – I accidently dropped the tree stamp so we ended up with lots of trees 😉

Lots of fun and very very easy!!!!
