A Christmas Advent Calender

I actually made 4 of these advent calenders for my mom and my aunts last year, and I meant to make one for myself this year but it's been a pretty busy holiday season in our household so there is always next year : ) . But I am just so proud of them, and since I didn't have a blog last year this is a newbe for everyone on here... I hope you enjoy!

All of the advent ornaments were cut with my Cricut using the Christmas Cheer Blog ( at that time I didn't have any other winter cartridges ). I used cardboard for the christmas tree calender part and covered it with 12 x 12 scrapbook paper that I traced and cut for each specific backing. Then my loving husband helped show me how to bend nails that I poked through the cardboard with a hammer, and to hide the nailheads i used a little bling with gems that already had adhesive on them!
Merry Christmas, and I hope to upload more and more on here next year!
