The edding Colour Happy Big Box gives you a huge array of pens and colours at your fingertips. This photo shows the open box, including the colour mixer and the pastel pen for creating colour gradients.
The paper bags can be decorated with all sorts of Christmassy motifs, be it snowmen, fir trees, angels, baubles, reindeer – anything that springs to mind. Sketch out the motifs in pencil first.
Using the black edding 55 fineliner, draw over all the fine outlines of the motifs. Next, use the edding 1340 brush pen (or another fibre pen from the Colour Happy Box) to colour in the motifs however you wish. You could keep it bright and varied by designing each motif in a different colour. With such a fabulous selection of colours, you’ll be spoilt for choice. And, of course, if you fancy blending colours, you can simply use the colour mixer.
Now mark each bag with a day of the month using an edding 1300 colour pen. Finally, fill the bags with yummy treats or tiny gifts and seal them up. And there you have it – your Advent calendar is finished!
