For years I am saying ‘this year I will make an advent calendar!’ But years went by and nothing happened, until this year! I finally started! And yes today I finished my ever first calendar, at least the bags. I still have to fill them with some treats and the nativity story, but hey I find it a big accomplishment already!
After I made a template for folding a bag, I started to draw some christmas icons on my Ipad. In Illustrator I’ve put them all together and finally made a pdf of it.
And because I would like you to enjoy this advent period too, I made this free pdf available for you too. But then I realized that it’s not that easy to explain how to fold these bags. So when I give this advent calendar for free, I need to give you some guidance too.
And suddenly I hit another milestone, making my first ever video tutorial! It is and was scary to make, but I hope it’s clear enough for you to understand!
Enjoy making your own calendar!
