Linen Bag Advent Calendar

My inspiration was, once again, Pottery Barn.

Materials used:

Foam board cut to size

Brown kraft paper

Linen thrift store wrap skirt (lots of great fabric there!)

Sewing machine

Black acrylic paint (for ink, cause mine is running out)

Rubber stamps


Jewelry bags (you can get a large package at WM for $1)


I just measured and cut squares/rectangles. It wasn’t really precise and the ironic thing

was that I actually used a measuring stick and pen to draw and measure this time. Shoulda eyeballed it.

Anyway, I like the size differences. Then I cut little strips and tacked them on the linen bag backs.

These are just tacked into the board and the ribbon is just stapled/gorilla taped on the back. (Hopefully that holds ok.)

I love advent calendars!
