12 Day Advent Pocket Calendar Pocket #11

Nov 11, 2009

Tag 311 Close Up

For the next several weeks I will be posting 12 altered pockets that when finished and put together will create a 12 Day Advent Pocket Style Calendar. I hope you decide to play along as you too will end up with an adorable calendar. This project is still in the works and is an idea I have so I will not have a complete supply list for you a head of time, just supplies used for that days pocket. I like to try to create something each day and think this will be a fun project to have in the works. I already stamped my images and accented my Fragments Charms so which ever charm pocket I feel like working on and finishing that day is the one you will see the next. It is fun to have a little randomness in my fairly structured day.


  • Stamp image onto heavy weight white cardstock, ink on top of stamped image using Distress Ink, lightly color image using jewel tone chalks.
  • Place glossy accents onto the back of a Fragments Charm and attach to stamped image. Using Alcohol Ink, ink the top of the Fragments Charm, accent the Fragments Charm with rhinestones and Distress Stickles, let dry. Once the Distress Stickles is dry apply a clear drying adhesive to the edge of the Fragments Charm and apply Gold German Glass Glitter to the edge, let dry. Once dry tie a piece of red seam binding on top.
  • Cover the front top half of a Size 5 – 4 3/4″ x 2 3/8″ office tag with patterned paper, fold the end up to create a pocket, cover the folded part of the pocket with patterned paper, stitch around the tag to secure the pocket, distress the edges, ink the edges using ColorBox Fluid Chalk Ink – Creamy Brown, apply Silver German Glass Glitter randomly to the edges of the pocket.
  • Attach a vintage button to the top center of the tag, accent the tag using lace, a holy pick and the altered Fragments Charm
  • Cut a piece of Kraft paper and create a strip to write one fun holiday thing to do that day, fold in half and place inside the pocket.

    Love it! Is that TATTING I see! My great grandmother taught me how to do this when I was in 8th grade. Sadly, I don’t do it much anymore, but I need to get it out so I remember how to! She always used it on pillowcases and sheet sets.
