Advent Pocket Calendar


Lisa Pace of It's In the Details is sharing a fun project called 12 Day Advent Pocket Calendar. Over the next couple of weeks she plans to share a tutorial on how to create each of the 12 pockets that "when finished and put together will create a 12 Day Advent Pocket Style Calendar." Each pocket will contain a small strip of paper that has a fun holiday thing to do each day. I've always loved Advent calendars and usually buy one each year but this caught my eye and looked like a lot of fun. It helps that I already had some of the supplies on hand. I had bought a set of Tim Holtz fragments not too long ago at Michaels when they were on sale. But the beauty of this project is that you can really use whatever you have on hand to embellish your pockets. Lisa's making the pockets randomly so today's pocket is number 1. She's already shown us how to make days 5, 10 and 11. Go take a look!

These are so sweet - looks like a wonderful project. Love all of the dimension and layering - anticipation would certainly build each day with revealing what's inside of each pocket!
