On the first day of Christmas...

Hiya crafty friends,

Well, this year has gone soooooo quick, too quick. I can't believe it is nearly Christmas already. 
This year I had a go at making my own hanging pocket advent calender.

It is amazing what you can do with some cardboard boxes, toilet rolls and some wrapping paper. I really had my own little Blue Peter!

What I was most pleased about was that the fabulous Creativity Club timed their free advent numbers download just right for me, which was perfect as I was wondering how I would do my numbers :)

Red and gold always feel really Christmassy to me, and I aged the scalloped number circles with Tea Dye distress ink to go with the gold card I had used. 

I embellished the pockets with antique gold card die cut, which was embossed with me favourite snowflake embossing folder. Which was free in a magazine :)

Red and gold ribbon was then used the connect the two pieces together and also a length to hang the calender from.
