Hello and welcome to the Advent Calendar Blog Hop!!! I’m so happy that you are hopping with us. First things first, if you came here from Michelle’s blog then you are in the right spot. If you landed here by chance and want to play along or need to get back to the beginning of the hop, please start here at Angelica’s blog. If this is your first time to primpedinpaper.com, I want to say welcome and I hope you find my blog inspiring.
Let’s get started! I’m thrilled to be part of another Hop hosted by the sweet and talented Ruthie. This Hop includes 16 awesome ladies. I’m excited to be included in this group of talented paper crafters. Thank you Ruthie for hosting another amazing Hop!
This is my first time making an Advent Calender so I was really looking forward to this project. I decided to challenge myself to not use my Cricut. I wanted this Advent Calendar to be something that anyone could put together with minimal supplies. So I got out my Christmas patterned paper stacks, punches, strands of beads, glitter, one very cute set of Lawn Fawn stamps and my hot glue gun. Then I went to town! Click photo’s to see a bigger picture.
I hope you liked my Advent Calender. It was a lot of fun to make and I think it looks very festive hanging on my fireplace. Now I just need to get some goodies to put inside the cones. At the bottom of the post I listed the products I used to embellish my Calendar. Whether you keep it simple or embellish it to max, I think it will look amazing. The most important things to me are that all ages can help make it, you don’t need a lot of supplies and of course that you have fun!
Thank you so much for hopping with us today! Before I send you off to your next stop. I have some Blog Candy!!! I apologize for not have a photo of it.
