Step by Step
Cut a magnetic sheet using the postage stamp Nesting Dies in the second to smallest size. You need to cut 24 pieces.
Using the same die cut 12 postage stamp squares from White Textured Cardstock and 12 from Kraftstax Card.
Adhere the card squares to the magnetic square using Double Sided Tape.
Type and print numbers 1 to 24 on your computer using Noteworthy font size 24 onto White and Kraft Cardstock. Cut these out using the smallest Heart and Square Nesting Dies, ensuring the number is central.
Cut various shapes from Home For Christmas Pad, Textured White Cardstock and the Kraftstax using X Cut dies in the smallest and next size up. You can use any shape's you wish, I have used Hearts, Square, Circles and Ovals.
Layer the shapes on top of each other in the same way I have, or create your own patterns, remembering to add a number to each square. Do not stick any of the shaped down until you are happy with the way they all look together, then use 3D pads in places to add some dimension to your calendar.
Stamp 2 Baubles from the Urban Home For Christmas Stamp Set using Red Artiste Ink, then cut them out and adhere to 2 squares. Add a bow to the top of them.
Embellish the squares with Red Adhesive Gems.
