Advent Calendar Blog Hop!!!




Aloha Everyone,
Yes it's here the Advent Calendar Blog Hop! Are you ready for all the great Christmas inspiration! I can't wait to see everyone's awesome creations. I want to thank Ruthie from September Ninth for having me, and letting me join in on the fun.
I do have BLOG CANDY at the end!!!
Now on to the fun!
Here is my Advent Calendar. I used felt for the back and made cake boxes to hold my advent sayings. I then used velcro to attach it to the felt. I had so much fun making this.



*This is a close up of the jump rings and the glass beads


*This is my list of things to put inside my boxes.
I got this list from Jessica Sprague (she is awesome).

* This is the cake box inked and the velcro attached on the back
*I was going to cut out snowflakes and glitter them, but found these red ones at Walmart instead!


*Material List
1-Felt 21" x 27"
white cardstock
red ribbon
red ink
jump rings
glass beads
velcro rough side only
glue dots
# set of stamps
silver metallic Sakura pen
Walmart glitter snowflakes

*Recipe for the Boxes & Tags
Cricut Cartridge Tags Boxes & More
*Boxes pg. 126
Cut the following cakes boxes as size follows
1- 3 3/4 "
2- 4"
4- 5"
5- 6"
6-7"
7-8"
for a total of 25 cake boxes

*Tags pg.91
Cut the following tags as size follows
1- 1 1/2"
3- 1 3/4"
4- 2"
5- 2 1/4"
6- 2 1/2"
7- 2 3/4"
for a total of 25 tags.

So here is how I put mine together.
1. cut the cake boxes
2.ink the cake boxes
3.put the velcro on the back on the boxes
4. cut the tags
5.stamp the tag #'s
6.ink the edges of the tags
7.doodle with the silver pen
8. make the ribbons bows
9.attach bows with 2 jump rings,
add some glass beads for some bling
10. attach jump rings to the inside middle knot of the bow
11.attach bow with tag to the cake box with glue dots
12.cut the felt sheet
13. place boxes with velcro backing to felt
14. Decorate as you wish

Before I Forget BLOG CANDY!!!!
I am giving away this beautiful handmade scarf with this beautiful handmade felt dahlia flower. It is very soft and I think it would make a great winter addition for yourself or as a gift.
If you would like to win here are the rules:
1. Please become a follower if you are not one.
2. Please leave me some love (a comment) and a way to get a hold of you.
Easy enough:)
I will draw the winner Monday Midnight Hawaii Time, and post on Tuesday's post.



Thanks for visiting and have fun with the rest of the hop!!!
Aloha- Dawnica
