How to make

You will also need: 

* Cricut Design Space app installed on a laptop, PC, Tablet, or mobile device

Step 1

Open up the project in Cricut Design Space by clicking on the link in the description, or alternatively, use the link below – https://design.cricut.com/landing/project-detail/60e2d57291f58a0d604934fe

If you would like to design your own advent calendar, create a template of 24 rectangles and add images and numbers to create your desired design.

Step 2

Lay the first sheet of iron-on-on face down onto the mat, make sure that all of your images have been mirrored in Design Space before loading the mat into the machine. Select iron-on as the material you would like to cut and start cutting. 

Once the cut is complete, repeat the steps for each sheet of iron-on until all of the project is cut.

Step 3

Next weed all of the iron-on sheets by taking off all of the iron-on, leaving only the designs on the clear carrier sheet. Once weeded cut around all of the individual pieces.

Step 4

Turn on the EasyPress Mini (Check the temperature using the Cricut Heat Guide). Take all of the purple stars and lay them down onto the advent calendar blank. Press the stars and remove the carrier sheet once cool.

Step 5

Next, add the black Halloween images and press. Remove the carrier sheet once cool.

Step 6

Add the neon numbers in any order you wish. Press and then remove the carrier sheet once cool.

Step 7

Finally add the 'Trick or Treat', header and press using the EasyPress Mini, wait for it to cool before peeling off the carrier sheet.

Step 8

Fill the pockets with little treats ready to hang up and enjoy.
