12 Day Advent Pocket Calendar #6

Dec 7, 2009

We are so close to fin­ish­ing up this 12 Day Advent Pock­et Cal­en­dar. I find this a fun way to keep the hol­i­days going dur­ing Ans­ley’s win­ter break and it helps with the sting of hav­ing to go back to school… just a lit­tle some­thing to look for­ward to each day after Christ­mas.  And I decid­ed to give you a peek at how I am arrang­ing the pock­ets. This is far from being fin­ished as I need to add some trim and oth­er embell­ish­ments but at least this way you can see the method to my mad­ness. Just two emp­ty spots left to fill. I love how today’s pock­et worked out… the lit­tle jester doll looks as though he is throw­ing a snow­ball.. too cute!

Pocket #6

  • 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 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 green seam bind­ing on top.
  • Cov­er the front top half of a 1 3/8″ x 2 3/4″ 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 a Red Dres­den Bor­der, Metal­lic Pom Pom 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.
