stocking advent

My darling daughter wanted an advent made of paper stockings for her mantel. These stockings hold a family activity for each day (build a snowman, make cookies, etc.). I love her idea for the stuffers! Here are the stockings on her mantel - I think they're adorable!
The start - cut 24 stockings in various papers on my trusty Cricut. Cut 24 more in white, and 24 cuffs. Half the cuffs embossed with Swirls and the other half with Snowflakes.
I cut numbers 1-24, glued them on, then spruced them up with a bit of white gel-pen.
 Strung them all on a piece of ribbon on the mantel front. Looks so stinkin' cute!

This turned out so cute. I love what you did with the white gel pen.

I would love it if you would share this at my new 12 Days of Christmas in July linky party. You can link up here:

I can’t wait to get organized for a peaceful and frugal holiday season!
