Santa's Workshop Advent Tree Calendar - Let's Get Hopping, Round #15

Welcome to the 15th round of the Let's get Hopping blog hop. This month theme is Christmas, Anything but a Card.

Some time ago I saw an advent calendar made from little boxes, arranged into the shape of a Christmas tree, on YouTube. And when I saw the Santa's Workshop Suite in the Stampin' Up!® seasonal catalogue I knew what my project for this blog hop would be.

This advent calendar was so much fun to create. Twenty-six little boxes piled up on each other, decorated with fussy scissored images. Here is a template to make one of the boxes. You need cardstock measuring 5 7/8" and 7 1/2". On the short side score at 3/4", 2 1/4", 3 3/4" and 5 1/4". On the long side  score at 1 1/2", 3", 4 1/2" and 6".

I stuck decorative paper on the sides and white cardstock on the front of each box. You can decorate it with whatever you like. I used items from Santa's workshop Suite. All the item are listed below. I made a little video to show you how it was all put together. Enjoy!

List of products I used to create this calendar:

I hope my project inspired you to, maybe, create your own advent calendar tree or something similar. If it did, leave me a message in the comment section to let me know. 
And now, continue to hop through all the blogs. Click on the image below to see what the talented Eimear Carvill prepared.
