Do you guys ever make your own advent calendars? I make one every year for my other half and always love finding creative ways to wrap up or display the little presents! Last year I made a bunch of different sized boxes to open and the year before I wrapped them up in festive fabric and hung them along a branch!

I haven’t quite decided what to do this year yet but we thought it would be fun to share a DIY advent calendar with you all that’s really really easy to make and not to mention, ridiculously cheap! To recreate this pastel Christmas tree advent calendar here’s what you’ll need!

YOU WILL NEED:

Pastel card // Vinyl (or sticker numbers) // Craft Glue // *A Cricut Explore //A bunch of chocolates and goodies to fill them calendar with! // Tree Template //

*If you don’t have a Cricut Explore then not too worry, simply print the template out onto card and cut out the shapes and score by hand!

STEP 1:

If you’re using a Cricut then open up the Cricut Design space and upload the above pyramid template. You’ll need to add in score lines where the dashed lines are so that the machine knows where to score.

STEP 2:

Next you’ll need to duplicate that shape 25 times! We then resized some of these, making some larger and some smaller so that the calendar looks more interesting when all the tress are placed together!

STEP 3:

Next hit go on your Cricut machine and load in your pastel card! You’ll want to make sure that your scoring stylus is in too so that the machine can score where it needs to for you!

Creative Wedding Favours on Etsy!

Everyone loves getting a little something to take away from a wedding don’t they? A wedding favour is a gift given to each wedding guest, this tradition originated in Italy where five sugar almonds were given; they were to represent wealth, health, fertility, long life & happiness. We love this tradition and as time has gone on favours have ‘evolved’ into almost anything! They often thread in with the theme, symbolise something about the couple’s personalities or are just a lovely gift!
