Vintage Advent Calendar
Design by Sande Krieger
Two purchased receipt holders become a pretty vintage Advent calendar when wired together. Use a neutral color scheme with one accent color to keep the project from becoming too busy. Fun details and messages adorn each Advent card made from "artist trading cards," embellishments, stamps, and stickers.
