Christmas Stocking Advent Calendar

Hello Cakettes!!!

If like me you just love christmas, you probably like to count down the days until this very special time of the year.. So to help me and my husband to do that and have a little treat along the way, I have made us an advent calendar....

Of Course if I owned a sewing machine I would probably have done this with fabric, just because it would have been more durable, but for now I think paper will do the job just fine... :)

I wanted to be able to add a little treat to each day so this is what I have designed...

I have designed a template for the stockings, it consists of three parts, the stocking itself, the "fold" on top of the stocking and the "pocket".

   The plan is to have this "rope" of stockings wrapped around a christmas garland and decorate around the room. Right now it is too soon to decorate the house, so I guess I'll have to wait untill I can do that, but I am sure it will look very nice.

I have placed the stockings in an ascending order of numbers, but you could place the numbers randomly which would also be a lot of fun!!!!

In the last stocking I wrote XMAS using glitter glue, I just thought it needed extra sparkle as it is the day I look forward to the most through out the year.

And of course in this picture you can see that I can fit a small treat in each pocket.. Yum!! :)
To be able to do that, I have used a small cellophane bag between the stocking and the "pocket" cover

I'm pretty sure there are many different ways to do this, you just have to find the one works best for you...

So by now you are probably guessing that if a template is involved, then you are probably going to be able to get a copy for free right?
