12 Day Advent Pocket Calendar #8

Dec 10, 2009

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.

Pocket #8 Close Up

  • 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.
