Advent Tree Calendars

Hello Marcia here to share a fun Advent Tree Calendar that I made using the Doodlebug North Pole collection and an SVGcuts file. This 3 dimensional calendar is going to be displayed on my fireplace hearth. I wanted to use some bright cheery paper with lots of pattern choices for variety. This collection has some adorable matching stickers and those fabulous Doodle-pops for dimension too.

These were so fun to make I couldn't stop at decorating the front, I had to decorate the sides too.

Each tree is constructed from sturdy cardstock and then embellished with pattern papers.

and each of the 25 doors open to stash a piece of candy or small toy...

My kids are older, but they still love getting treats :)
What are you crafting this year for the Holidays?
