Advent Calendar Treat Holder Banner

This is an advent calendar, treat banner style, that I just mailed to my daughter. I love how it turned out.  Each pocket contains two small treats for each day until Christmas.


The banner is in two strands because of so many pockets.  Here is a closer look at the panels before I added the ribbon:


I made each panel different, included inspirational verses and lots of holiday stamping.


This was a ton of work and time consuming but so worth it.  I sent her some hook nails to hang this high.  Let's hope her kitty doesn't destroy this, lol.  

I am including this banner with the Unity FWF projects this week.

Tools used include:
Unity Stamp Company stamps from Tags, Glorious Tags and Advent.
My Creative Time 3 x 3 Fancy Envelope Die, Jaded Blossom number candies.

Thank you for visiting. Your comments make my day. :)
