Today I have a fun Advent calendar that you can make in time for Christmas! It’s fun, easy, and uses basic supplies!
I used the Xyron Mini Multi-Stick Glue Gun for this project. It holds three mini glue sticks at once so you can keep on crafting without stopping to reload!
This project can be whipped up in a couple of hours! It is the perfect way to use that pretty metallic or glitter paper you have in your stash, as the lights on the Christmas tree will reflect on the surface of the ornament. Watch the video to see how!
- Xyron Mini Multi-Stick Glue Gun
- Metallic 12″x12″ scrapbook paper
- 12″ paper cutter
- Number rubber stamps
- Gold pigment ink pad
- Gold embossing tinsel
- Heat embossing tool
- 1/4″ organza ribbon (Cut to 9″ lengths)
- Paper punches or dies (I used hexagons but circles would also work well!)
- Candy or small gifts to go inside!
This project is very economical since you will get 6 ornaments for each 12″x12″ sheet of scrapbook paper. If you don’t have time to make a full Advent calendar, you can do a 12 days of Christmas countdown or simply make these treat boxes to hold small gifts. Adapt this idea to fit your needs. I hope you give this project a try! Happy Christmas crafting!
