Every year I make an advent calendar for my husband…. I vary the chocolates every year, and he LOVES it (yes, he really is just a big kid!). Two years ago I made a larger one that could hold two chocolates … but this year I am trying to be more careful about my chocolate intake. So, while I have made one for James (that’s coming to a YouTube channel near you NEXT friday!) I still wanted something for myself!

I spend FAR too long on social media (don’t we all!) and spotted a similar project a few weeks ago… But I cannot for the life of my remember where I saw it, or who it was! However, here is my Calorie Free Advent Calender….

I am loving this Basic Black and Old Olive colour combination for Christmas this year…. I made a card using the same combination earlier in the week (you can find it HERE!)

My other favourite product in this project is the awesome Everyday Label Punch, as well as coordinating with TWO stamp sets in the Autumn/Winter catalogue…. it makes the perfect layer on your cards and projects… especially when punched out of Vellum (Yum!)


For the numbers….

Basic Black card stock – 3 x 3″ (7.5 x 7.5 cm)

Whisper White layer – 2 3/4 x 2 3/4″ (7 x 7 cm)


For the Frame….

The frame is THIS one from Ikea….. LOVE Ikea, don’t you!

Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper – 22 x 22 cm

Whisper White Layer – 20 x 20 cm

My favourite part of this project is the leaf wreath. Punched out using the Leaf Punch, a whole heap of leaves in Basic Black and Old Olive…. adhered to the backing with Hot Glue. By using my Glue Gun I was able to give the wreath some extra dimension, as not all the leaves lay flat.
