We're almost halfway through November already, which means it's time to get to work on your 2014 Advent Calendar, if you haven't already. Click the links below to download the template for today's project, but be sure to come back here and answer the question for today's giveaway!
Today's USTREAM Project
I saw this wonderful idea for a Valentine's Day decoration on the Casa e Cose blog and thought it would make a fabulous Advent Calendar with a little tweaking:
Can't you picture a row of 24 paper cones, all done in winter or Christmas colors, hanging from the mantle or a row of twinkle lights? What a wonderful twist on the Advent Calendar that would be!
Gather your Christmas papers, ribbons and embellishments together and join me live this afternoon and evening to see me make some Advent Cones - hopefully it will inspire your own handmade calendar.
I'll be using the leftovers from my Christmas Kit to make my cones, so this is a great bonus project for those of you that got the kit!
I host classes on my USTREAM channel every Thursday from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM Eastern USA and then again from 9:00 PM to 11:00 PM Eastern USA time.
Today we're giving away a Sizzix Filmstrip Die!
