12 Day Advent Pocket Calendar #8
Well we did it… all 12 pockets are completed. Now to arrange them and onto my canvas and alter that up a bit. Will get to work on it and show you the finished project soon. This is going to be a fun thing to do with Ansley during her Christmas break. There’s nothing like having a little something fun to do each 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 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 white 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, a miniature gold angel 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.
The White Seam Binding is in my “Holiday Sweet Treats” packet. When you purchase a “Holiday Sweet Treats” packet and my “Glistening Snow Glitter” Mixture (only one left) at the same time I include a few extra surprise embellishments.
