As promised this is the instructions for this lovely Advent tree I made again this year
Cherry cobbler card stock 5, 5/8 x 7 1/2 you need 25 of these
Designer Series Paper 1. 1/2 x 1. 1/2 you need 4 of these per box and 5 for the top box
Score the long side at 1/2 , 2. 1/4 , 4, 5 3/4
turn and score 3/8 , 2. 1/8, 3. 7/8.
Cut using the template below. keeping the full section removed for the circle behind the date.
I didn't wedge the cuts because it can very easily be over trimmed. Instead I did it as I was putting the box together, this way it wasnt going to drop open.
I used a half inch circle punch for the notch at the top.
I lined up 9 boxes and stuck some ribbon on the back to secure them together using tear and tape, I used just tape last year and they all came apart.
These can now be joined together to make your circle.
9 on the bottom row
7 on the second
5 on the third and Christmas day on top.
I glued these together using a hot glue gun to make it more secure.
It was then mounted on a covered circle of card with matching cardstock.
The numbers were cut from a heart from the sweet and sassy framelits and backed onto a die from the layering circle framelits but the size these will depend on your numbers.
I hope these instructions help and I would love to see your advent when you have done one.
