I know that these advent calendar trees have been around for quite some time and originated from a CTMH “competitor” LOL, but I thought it would be fun to give them a try this year. I made 26 boxes from the Artiste Cricut cartridge by Close To My Heart from a Michael’s paper pack. I arranged them on a covered 11 inch chipboard circle with layers of 7, 6, 5, 4, and 3 boxes. The final 26th box on top does not have a number and is for decorative purposes only.
I used a hot glue gun to assemble the tree and attach a bow at the top. The numbers were stamped on scalloped circles and heat embossed in gold to match the paper. Each day in December, the correct box is opened to reveal a treat!! I’m glad I gave this project a try and so happy with how it turned out! Now who to give it to…??
