Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Sorry I’m a bit late today, I spent some time with my grandson AJ yesterday who turned 17! Wow, they grow up fast. On the other hand, I also spent time with my youngest granddaughter Lori … she’s just 4 months. It was a busy day!
While checking out the “Get Inspired” blog by Stampin’ Up! I ran across the cutest project for Christmas. It was created by Allison Okamitsu 2014–2015 Artisan Design Team. I just had to share this one with you ….
Tree Advent Calendar
Christmas will be here before you know it, my friends, and what better way to celebrate the days leading up to it than an advent calendar?!
Tiny Treat Boxes (item #135829) make an adorable advent tree. I’ve covered each of the boxes with patterns from the Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper (item #139592)—what fabulous nostalgic designs it has! And the Hello December 2015 Project Life Accessory Pack (item #139654) has some great stickers numbered 1–25 for each box lid. The boxes are the perfect size to hold a treat, love note, or coupon for each day of December until Christmas day.
You’ll want to assemble your tree in layers, with seven boxes on the bottom layer, followed by layers of six, five, four, three, and one. The box on the very top of the tree isn’t meant to be opened, but it sure looks lovely as a topper. Using hot glue, I also adhered a double bow with long, whimsical tails using two yards of Mossy Meadow 5/8″ Striped Cotton Ribbon (item #138419).
Whether you’re counting down until Christmas with little children at home, grown children at university, or your spouse, this Tree Advent Calendar will be a lovely addition to your holiday (or dorm room) décor!
