Festive Christmas December Flip Calendar


After a very long hiatus I am happy to be back in the craft room and posting on the blog. Thanks to some serious motivation from my friend and her new craft shop Molly's Craft Shack, I will do my best to support her and bring many fun paper crafting ideas to my blog.

Today I'll share a December Flip Calendar using the Heartfelt Creations Festive Christmas paper and a few of their great stamps and dies. Everything about this line is lovely. Rich texture. Great coordinates. Perfect for the holidays. I think this would make a lovely gift as well and it makes up pretty quick! I love the flower stamp and die sets.

Originally I was gifted one of these a few years back from my dear friend Kathrin. There is a tutorial on Stempeleinmaleins. I decided to make mine a calendar for the full month versus advent. I really loved the finished product. My finished card size is 5.5x8. A little larger then the tutorial notes. I like this larger size. Seems to balance the number tags pretty well.
