To start Homemade Christmas Decor week, I want to show you my brand new
Framed Advent Calendar!
Its high time we had an advent calendar around here. With my oldest being 3, we need a little help counting down the days to Christmas!
Here’s how I made it…
I found this great frame in the clearance section at Hobby Lobby. $10.80 for a 10.5×14.4 inch frame? Yes please!!
Canvas Corp was kind enough to send me some of their products to play with, so I decided to try out their waxed cotton cording to string along my frame. I tied off each end so it would be hidden behind the frame and put a small dab of Beacon’s 3-in-1 in the center of the knots to make sure nothing would come untied.
You may know by now how much I love Kraft paper, so I was beyond thrilled to find several pieces of patterned Kraft paper in my Canvas Corp stash! I selected 5 different sheets and cut them into 25 rectangles for the banners for my advent calendar.
I put some Wonder Film from P K Glitz (a double-sided adhesive sheet) through my Silhouette to cut out some numbers for the calendar. Then I put the numbers on the rectangles of Kraft paper.
I wanted glittery numbers that would really shine in the Christmas lights so once I took the top layer of paper off of the Wonder Film numbers, I sprinkled them with P K Glitz crimson glitter. They seriously sparkle! And the red looks fabulous on the Kraft paper!
I continued on with all of the numbers, adding the glitter to them all.
Then to make my rectangles into banners, I took the scissors and various border punches to them.
On the back of the banners I added various Christmas decorations I had in my scrapbook stash.
i love your kraft tags you made, and so so cute to make the clothepines like candy canes! what a great idea!
