Advent Pocket Calendar

Advent Pocket Calendar

If you are here from Pinterest, welcome! To answer the questions I most commonly get, this calendar is made with a thick cardstock back (2 12x12-inch sheets), and the pockets are just scrapbook paper. Yes, I sewed the pockets with a regular sewing machine (just use an old needle, and don't reuse it for sewing). I glued down the sides and bottoms first using a glue-pen--make sure you find one that dries DRY, if you know what I mean. You don't want it to gum up your machine. Other than that, just glue your knick-knacks wherever you think they look good! Thanks for stopping by! The main link for this craft is found here: #23 - Advent

Made with paper and fabric scraps, chipboard, stickers, and various knick-knacks/household junk.
