Create Quick and Easy Advent Calendar Gifts

It’s never too early to start preparing for the holidays to help avoid the rush. Today I have a fun and easy upcycled project for the little ones in your life – a Toilet Paper Roll Advent Calendar. Now I just have to save up 20 more toilet paper rolls!

Skill: Beginner
Time: 1 hour


Step 1

Buy or collect 25 paper rolls for the 25 days of the advent calendar.

Step 2

Bend the ends of each roll towards the center to make a “pillow box”.

Step 3

Spritz the rolls with Lady Bug, Bamboo Leaves and Wedding Dress irRESISTible Texture Spray. Let dry before moving on to another color.

Step 4

Dye rayon seam binding with All-Purpose Ink in Spring Green and Red Delicious.

Step 5

Stamp white cardstock with a variety of Christmas-theme images using VersaMagic inks. Die-cut circles from the stamped cardstock. Stamp a large number stamp in the center of each circle using VersaFine Clair ink.

Step 6

Sprinkle the circles with clear embossing powder, shake off excess and set with a heat tool. Die-cut scallop circles from Rinea Foiled Papers.

Step 7

Fill and assemble each pillow box with a treat; affix the ribbon around the box using Tear It! Tape and top it off with the number.
