Advent Calendar Iron on + Free Printable

I know no one wants to think about Christmas yet but December 1st is almost a week away. With advent calendars you have to plan ahead a bit. I really love advent calendars (see: here). When we first got married we made it a tradition to do some sort of little ritual or token everyday that would get us in the mood for Christmas. They can be little things like drink spiced cider or big things like go see the Nutcracker. This is the first year Moses really understands what’s happening so I’m excited to continue our tradition with kids. I’m so happy to team up with Amanda Jane Jones who designed this beautiful printable. These little sacks are so easy to make. All you need is Iron-On transfer paper and 24 little sacks. Once they are filled with activities and little toys and treats I’m going to hang them on the wall with a little washi tape.

Materials Needed:

Iron-On transfer paper, 6″x4″ Cotton Muslin Bags, iron, printer.

Step 1: Download the free printable by clicking here (the images will be reversed so that once they are ironed on they will be correct.) Then print them on iron on transfer paper (you can purchase this at an office supply store) and cut out rectangles.
Step 2: Place each rectangle with the image side touching the muslin bag.
Step 3. With a very hot iron (no moisture) press down on each bag for 1-2 minutes.

Step 4. Once it is cool peel up the corner and pull the paper off. Easy-peasy.
