Start by covering your 20.5 x 13-inch card stock with some marble contact paper. Then download, print and cut out our advent calendar template. Now use a glue stick and colorful washi tape to attach the tag to the cardboard, and then use the glue gun to add some greenery, as shown above.

I decided to add one present per week (a pair of stud earrings, a mini chocolate bar and travel-sized makeup), but feel free to add as many as you want. Last but not least, complete the calendar with gold Christmas accessories. Ta-dah! You’re done.
I’m sure this cutie will be the center of attention all month long.
