DIY: Style Watch: Valentine’s Day Advent Calendar

Valentine's Day Advent Calendar


I told myself that I would make an advent calendar for Christmas. That didn’t happen. It’s not because I’m a slacker or anything (ha!) – it’s really because I’ve decided that advent calendars make a lot more sense for Valentine’s day. (See how I rationalized that…I’m good at coming up with excuses).

Clear and Simple Stamps recently released the cutest little miniature envelope – and let’s be honest, mini envies are the best. I die cut mine from woodgrain embossed cardstock, then added notes on the inside using patterned paper.  Of course there are 14 envies …

On each of the notes, I stamped the numbers one through fourteen, using Cake Decorating, Too.
