To create this advent calendar you will need 1 Lily Bee 6x6 Christmas Cheer tiny Tablet, small kraft bags, your favorite border punch, 7/8 inch circle punch, 1 inch decorative punch , red cardstock, bakers twine, 18x22 inch frame, and mini clothes pins.
To start off using my 7/8 inch circle punch I punched out all the numbers from the Christmas Cheer 6x6 Tiny Tablet number paper. Then using red cardstock I punched out 25 1 inch decorative starbursts. I used a Martha Stewart punch but you could use a 1 inch scallop punch or even a 1 inch circle punch.
Using foam squares for added depth I adhered the punched circles to the red startbursts.
Cut 25 2.5 inch x 2 inch rectangles of your favorite patterns from the Christmas Cheer 6x6 Tiny Tablet. Then using your favorite border punch add a decorative border to the long edge of your cut out rectangles. Then fold in half as seen in the photo below. Put the candy in the kraft bag, fold the edge to seal in the candy and top off with your folded piece of patterned paper. My kraft bags came from Micheal's.
I sewed my bags shut as seen in the photo below but you could easily staple them instead.
Since I have 2 kids I made 2 sets of candy bags.
I purchased an inexpensive unfinished frame from Micheal's, spray painted it black, distressed it, then I tacked bakers twine in 5 rows and used mini clothes pins to attach the treat bags.
Thanks for joining me today and happy holidays.
