Advent or Countdown Calendar Video Demo

hanging advent calendar

The picture doesn't do justice to this hanging advent or count down calendar. In real life, its a stunning, eye-catching item that you'll use year after year and show it with such pride.

I designed this product completely from "scratch". It's created with easy-to-locate supplies that you can get anywhere -- or substitute for something else if you want to. The calendar costs less than ten dollars to make, even if you buy everything at a craft store. If you shop the Dollar Stores or look in your stash, it could cost even less than that.

I designed the little windows or pockets so they "pooch" out, leaving you room to insert a candy or other small gift.

You can use this calendar by simply laying it on a flat surface or you can attach a ribbon at the top and hang it.

It's lightweight, meaning you can mail it to someone as a gift without spending a fortune on postage.

This is truly one of my favorite items. I'm sure you'll like it too.


What Other Crafters Had to Say

Joan McKnightThe instructions are clear and the demonstrations are very visible and easy to follow. "

I watched this video and even a clutz like me could make this. I particularly like the idea that I can “customize” this with things that I have such as paper, trim and buttons. A mass produced kit is…well…a mass produced kit. It could so easily be personalized and you could have one for every child in the family! In fact, I can see many uses for this besides Xmas….the end of school year, birthday or whatever. Also a reward for chores done around the house each day and a special reward in the last pocket. Kids love these things and could probably make their own with some help depending on their age. I’ll bet teachers would like something like this in the classroom too, but not candy in the pockets. I am always impressed by the things that June makes. They inspire me to go forth and make a mess in MY house too! The best part is that these things are easy to do and you don’t have to spend days shopping and looking for special supplies"

The Drummer Boy Video Tutorial

drummer boy card made with Holly Berry House stamp The owner of a local craft store said this one should be framed, its that cute!

The picture pales in comparison to the card. In real life, this delightful drummer boy card is a stunning combination of layering, cutting, heat embossing and glitter.

The drummer boy figure is cleverly shaped with several layers of embossed stamping. Gold embossing and two colors of strategically applied glitter make this a rich and detailed project. If you make the drummer boy into a Holiday card, its a card that gets tucked away and saved for years to come.

This project calls for Holly Berry House Stamp #1568. If your local stamp store doesn't carry it, you can order it online from Holly Berry House's Online Store.

The video demonstration takes you through the steps of creating a beautiful card like this for yourself. It doesn't have to be a card, of course.

If you've never worked with Holly Berry House medallion cards before, seeing a video demo really does help. They're not easy to figure out on your own.

This video package includes a Shopping List.

Why Not Just Go to a Workshop?

Workshops are fun. I like attending them also. It's great to mix with other people who share the same interests. However, there can be problems. If you're like me, you've come across all of these situations:

  • Availability: Perhaps your area doesn't offer many classes or workshops. Not everyone lives in a city with multiple scrapbook or crafting stores at their disposal.
  • Schedule: Perhaps the workshops don't fit your busy schedule. Maybe the ones you want are scheduled for a day and time when you can't make it. Or maybe the class involves a long drive after dark, and you'd just rather not.
  • Time Constraints: Maybe you're just too busy to get to a class. After all, your work commitments and your family responsibilities come first.
  • Interest: Sometimes the workshops and classes don't offer the projects that you want to make.
  • Supplies: Maybe the projects call for special tools or supplies that you don't want to buy or can't locate.
  • Class Speed: Perhaps the classes move too quickly or too slowly for you. You prefer to work at your own speed and take breaks when you want to.
  • Complexity: Sometimes you make a complex project in a class, then you can't remember how to replicate it again at home.
  • Instructor Style: Occasionally, the instructor's style or personality just doesn't fit for you. Perhaps she provides complicated instructions that you find challenging to follow or she has no time to offer personal assistance. Or perhaps you are seated too far away from the instructor and have problems seeing what he or she is doing.
  • Price: Maybe the price is a deterrent. Spending anywhere from $25 to $50 for a single workshop is a lot of cash that you could better put elsewhere -- such as hmmmm.... buying more supplies? (nudge, nudge, wink, wink!)
