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!

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!

In the course of 4 years we have had so many flowers we could have easily hosted our very own Chelsea Flower show – ok, so I might over exaggerating a teency tiny bit but who cares, I love flowers!! Who doesn’t?!

1. 3D Flower Art: You might have seen similar projects to this on Pinterest with materials such as thread and paper flowers, but we wanted add our own unique spin and try it out with beautiful fresh flowers instead!

You could even use photos from the day and display in your home after the occasion for a special touch.
