Create your own Christmas Magic with a handmade Advent Calendar. This project highlights our Warm Wishes papers and stamps, and would look great nestled in with any holiday decor. Watch Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador, Larissa Fyodorovna put this brilliant project together in the video tutorial below.
When I unpacked this wonderful collection Warm Wishes I was overflowing with ideas that I could not decide what to start first.
Now I have designed an Advent calendar for you. With us in Germany it is tradition to start on the first of December with the number 1. In total there are 24 little doors with little surprises, one for each day.
I have constructed for you an Advent calendar in the form of a Christmas tree.
It is double-sided.
You can place the little surprises 12 on the front side and 12 on the back side in drawers.
I hope you like it.
You can feel an additional fun if you embellish the sheets from the Patterns & Solids pack with mixed media techniques. It’s a bit like magic.
To get the effect of three-dimensionality spacers can be inserted between the layers.
If you don’t have a plotter, you can die cut the edges of the paper pieces for the roofs, or punch them with an edge punch, or cut waves into them with a pair of shape scissors.
