Welcome to the Exploring Cricut Christmas in July Blog Hop! If you have just arrived from Emily's Blog, then you are in the right spot. I am really excited about what I have created for you today! Let me show you:
It's an Advent Calendar. I got the idea on Pinterest. I saw a number of beautiful advent calendars and combined a few of them to create this.
The numbers are cut out of pretty much every font cartridge I have. There are 24 different fonts used, one for each of the numbers. The scalloped circles that I mounted the numbers on are from Storybook.
The envelopes are from TBBM. I cut them at 5.2 inches. I cut them out of lots of different Christmas papers, from lots of different companies including DCWV and K and Co.
The tags were cut from the Sweet Treats cartridge, cut at 2.9 inches on my Gypsy Girl. They fit almost perfectly in the little envelopes.
I decided to make this an activity calendar. Every day, the kids will pull an Christmas related activity that we will do as a family. The activities were printed on the computer.
We will keep the activities in an envelope, and the night before, Mike and I will decide what the next day's activity will be. After deciding, we will tape the activity to the tag. That way the activity will always be a surprise - because the tags are blank (no peeking by my nosy munchkins) and we can look at the weather, and the day and pick the perfect activity.
The next stop on our hop is Lori at Scrappin Saints so be sure to go see what she has created for you! Here is our blog hop schedule, just in case you get lost along the way.
