Paper bag advent calendar

Bags of colourful surprises for your nearest and dearest

This lovely, vibrant Advent calendar will go down a storm with your friends and family. And because it’s so simple to make, it’s also a great idea for anyone wanting to have a go at crafting an Advent calendar for the first time. You’ll need 24 paper bags (small food bags or sandwich bags are ideal) and a selection of pens from the edding Colour Happy Big Box. The box contains a huge array of colours and pen types, ranging from broad- and fine-nibbed colour pens to brush pens and fineliners, not to mention gel rollers in glossy metallic shades – a dream for drawing and colouring fanatics. A brush pen colour mixer is also included, allowing you to create beautiful colour gradients with ease by blending the colours. With this almost infinite world of colour at your fingertips, designing will be so much fun that you probably won’t be able to stop yourself making a second calendar for another loved one right away! Just let your imagination run free.
