12 Days of Christmas at Doodlebug - Day 6 with Ro

by Ro Philippsen

For me and my family Christmas is the most magical and the most wonderful time of the year. I have a feeling that when December begins, something really magical surrounds our lives: the magic of Christmas...I really believe that! It is when we gather with family to celebrate peace and love, this is the greatest message we receive from God.

And one of the things I find most symbolic about Christmas is the Advent Calendar, that doing the countdown, we feel the magic taking our hearts day after day.

Every year I like to do a new Advent Calendar, it's like renewing my faith, so this year I decided to do something interesting, I using  empty tape rolls, like the ones you see in the image.

During the year I kept all empty rolls I used, knowing that at some point would use them!
I covered the inside and outside of the rolls with the gorgeous "North Pole" Collection cardstocks, and also applied gesso at the edges.

And then I was just have fun with the amazing Doodlebug "North Pole" Collection and Doodlebug Alphabet Stickers, to create the Advent Calendar this year.

I hope you've enjoyed this inspiration, and wish you all have a Magic and Enchanted Christmas with your family and all the people you love.
