Customizable Advent Calendar

I posted this adorable calendar on Samantha Walker’s blog last week and could not wait to share it here. I love Samantha Walker’s customizable advent calendar and could not wait to make it!

You can purchase her customizable advent calendar file (ID# 48691) from the Silhouette On-line Store for $1.99. You can also purchase her advent cards to use with your print and cut feature of the Silhouette and titles to customize your project. This file was designed to be layered on two pieces of 12 x 12 card stock, but I changed it up a bit and used the Silhouette Advent Calendar Kit which you can also purchase from Silhouette on-line store. The Silhouette advent calendar comes with this frame and 35 wire clips. I slightly modified Samantha’s file to work with the clips and I will show you how on the video below.

I love how easy it was to make the cute pockets and inserts using her files.

I love the country Christmas look and can’t wait to hang this in my craft room!

Have a great week and thanks for visiting!

I have been wanting to make an advent calendar every year and never get to it. Maybe this will be the year. Thanks for the inspiration. Ana
