Christmas Inspiration Series 2

Continuing the Christmas inspiration...
There are many different ways to create an advent calender yourself. This would be great for a young child or if you are like me well some big kids too.
Using your software chose an A4 page layout landscape style.
Choose a digikit to suit your project, I used the Magical Christmas digikit for this.

1. Place a Patterned background on the page
2.Place a plain paper centrally and crop to a rectangle
3. use a material, make it smaller then replicate 25 times 
(group 24 of the squares and save one for day 25)
4. choose a font of your choice and put in the numerals
5. Decorate with elements to suit the page
6. Add a heading to suit i.e. a name
7. Angle day 25's square to complete. 

Then it is your choice once printed how to take the idea further:

1. Cut each square on 3 sides, to make doors and create a pretty picture page to go behind it.
2. Just have the front page as a wall hanging and 25 small sweets/gifts to give out as each day is ticked off.

Decorate with glitter or other things you love.
