Free DIY tutorial: Advent calendar

free DIY tutorial advent christmas calendar

Oh my, I can’t believe it’s December again! Christmas 2014 will be a special one since it’s the first one for my baby girl Merel. I thought this deserved a proper countdown so this year I finally made my own Advent calender. I based the design on my new Gifts Christmas Cards which are available in my shop.

I thought I’d make this calender my very first Christmas gift to you, lovely blog readers, so I turned this project into a printable and DIY tutorial! Hurray!

Fill the glassine bags with the candy and chocolates. Fold the bag over, place the round tag on top and punch a hole through both with the eyelet puncher. Put the gold eyelet through the hole and fasten with the puncher.
