Making your own advent for Christmas lets you customize it your own way. I made mine into a candy advent but it would also be fun as coins, dollars, or any other little items.
Special thanks to Cricut for providing materials that were used in this post.
- Cricut Maker
- Cardstock – 12″ x 12″
- Cricut Markers
- Glue Dots
- SVG file
To begin, download the free SVG file – Candy Advent.
The SVG file can be used to cut and draw. I chose to draw the type and numbers but you can cut them out of vinyl or card stock too. Then the shape was cut from the 12 x 12 card stock.
The drawn text is done as an outline. I chose to fill it in with a marker. A thick permanent marker was used to fill in the numbers. I did so in a rough, quick manner to make the advent appear more handmade. You can choose to do yours as you desire.
I used snack sized candy and attached them to the advent with Glue Dots.
Here is a close up of the numbers and the candy attached to the advent.
What will you use on your advent?
