12 Day Advent Pocket Calendar #4

Dec 4, 2009

We are get­ting so close to fin­ish­ing up our cal­en­dar. I might share a peak of how mine looks with all the tags togeth­er… still try­ing to decide… I might just make you wait. And make sure you check back tomor­row as I am going to have the instruc­tions on how I cre­at­ed this cute orna­ment. That snow­man makes me so hap­py. Thanks Deb­by for ask­ing me to par­tic­i­pate in your 12 Days of Home for the Hol­i­days.

Pocket #4

  • 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.
  • Using a paint­brush apply Elmer’s No Run School Glue all over the top, gen­er­ous­ly apply my Glis­ten­ing Snow Glit­ter mix­ture over the wet adhe­sive, tap off excess and let dry. Once dry attach a pearl to the cen­ter of the glit­tered flower.
  • Accent the tag using the glit­tered Hydrangea 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.
