It's me, Heather from Paper Crafter Anonymous and I am sharing with you a small portion of my advent gifts I am working on for my daughters.. I have these fabulous little bags from Close to My Heart I purchased when they were on clearance. So this is my take on an advent calendar..
Each little bag will be decorated, some will have small gifts, like the second one has a gift card, others will have prompts to do good things, spirit of christmas stuff, sharing etc, some will be things to do as a family and some will be coupon type things.. It will be a great little mix of fun things for my kids year. I will close the bags staple/tape etc or punch a hole and hang them on the tree I like that the kids can choose something from the tree which is why they are not numbered. Now you know the background of the project lets talk about it..

November Stamp of the Month, Close to my Heart stamped on a Wilton Doily and spritzed with Tattered Angels Mist.. Paper is from My Minds Eye, ribbon is white colonial grosgrain ribbon and I have attached this fabulous Pinque Peacock Angel stick pin.
For the insert which will have the coupon etc written on it I used white daisy card stock,
co-ordinating paper and also spritzed it with the same Tattered Angels Mist to make it a little more cohesive.

This lovely envelope holds a Gift Card, I used white daisy card stock, patterned paper is also from My Minds eye. The Brown envelopes are from The Paper Company and I see a fishers tab punch for the pull out card. I added a gorgeous ELegant Floral by Pinque Peacock, with some CTMH Bling in the middle of the flower and to the right. I stamped Holiday cheer in black on a piece of brown card stock.
Thanks for stopping by today and letting me share a little bit of my tradition and creation with you!
Happy Crafting!
