Fussy cut 9 hearts from the CHILLED paper and stack them in the centre of the heart, radiating out from the sentiment.

Beyond the Page Christmas

Countdown to Christmas

September 14, 2018

Sleigh Advent Calendar

The countdown to Christmas is well and truly on.  
Over the years Kaisercraft has been known for their awesome advent calendars and this year is no exception.

This year we have brought out a fun and funky Sleigh Advent in our Beyond the Page range.  
Team this product up with the Woodland Village Scene which can be displayed on it own, or incorporated onto the top of the sleigh for a gorgeous home decor piece that children (of any age) will love going back to day after day to see what treat is inside the little drawers.

To help take the guess work out when trying to work out how to decorate – we have included an advent specialty foiled page that coordinates with the Woodland collection.  The squares on this paper, when cut up, fit perfectly on the front of each drawer. All you have to do is cut strips of coordinating papers to cover the sides and then add one of these squares to the front of each. It doesn’t get much easier than this. All the numbers are silver foiled so that stand out.

PS538 | Advent – Silver Foil

When you purchase the sleigh it comes as the the stand alone project to create as below.  
You can cover the slots in the top layer with paper and fill the top layer with sweets and candy or even little presents

OR…
there is more….

You could also purchase our Woodland Scene – a little decor project in itself – and simply transfer the pieces that would normally sit in the provided base into the slots on the top of the sleigh to create the finished project showed at the beginning of this post.
