Chrstmas Advent Calendar and Stamp of the Month

Christmas Advent Calendar Box Workshop, photos and artwork courtesy of
Karen Pedersen
Who wouldn't want to make this darling Christmas Advent Calendar Box?  I can't think of a single person. 

You can participate in this workshop in one of three ways:

  1. Come to an in-person class (see dates and times below)
  2. Participate long-distance
  3. Host this workshop in your home with you and at least 5 friends and I'll come to you (in Utah).You, as hostess, will earn at least $40 in hostess rewards and at least one half-off item (and that's only if everyone only purchases the Basic Kit. The more you sell, the more you earn)!
Call or email me to order a kit and sign up in one of those three ways (check the side bar for contact info). Read on for more details...

The finished project is 14" x 14" x 2 3/4" and each daily drawer is 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" square. It's a darling Christmas decoration and very functional. One of the things I love most about it is that the little drawers are so roomy you can easily fit enough treats in each one for each child or grandchild that will want to pull out the drawer each day in December. (Most advent calendars are only for one treat or prize.)  My friend, Karen, had the great idea of filling each drawer with Hershey's Kisses and a scripture reference.

Here is a photo that shows a close up of a few of the drawers:

In person classes at my South Jordan Home (if you want to attend one of these classes, I need to hear from you no later than Monday, November 19):

  • Monday morning, November 26  from 10 am - 1 pm
  • Saturday morning, Novemberer 24 from 10 am - 1 pm
  • Saturday evening, November 24 from 7 pm - 10 pm
To attend the class, all you need to purchase is the Basic Kit.  Anything above and beyond that is up to you. I will be providing the items you see in  the Better and Best Kits for your use at the workshop, but you may want some of those items of your very own.

If you are participating in this class long-distance, I suggest you get the Better Kit. You'll need those few extra items to complete the workshop if you are not attending in person. If you already have the Artiste Cartridge and a Cricut Machine, you won't need the Best Kit. If you don't have them, you can either purchase the Best Kit or pay an extra $5 and I will cut your workshop papers for you before I send your kit.
