Advent Calendar Day 10 Gift

Welcome to the gift of an Advent Calendar.  I have always loved Advent calendars.  When I was little, I just couldn't wait to open each little door and find the surprise waiting there.

This Christmas I am turning my blog into an Advent calendar, so I can give you a Christmas surprise every day until Christmas.  Every day I will post downloadable artwork for you to use as my gift.

Today's gift is A Santa Ornament for you to make. 

I have created a file, holding both the front and back of the ornament for you to create your own.  When you print this file on 8.5x11" it will look like this:

The name of the file is Advent Calendar Day 10 Santa ornament.  You can download the file here.    You can share the link with your friends.

After you print your 8.5" x 11" sheet, you can cut out the complete form and then use the strips provided to be your hanger, or you can use ribbon.
A trick I did for the hanger is:
once you have cut out the complete form, lay either the strips that I  have provided,
or a piece of ribbon folded to form a loop at the top
glue the ribbon in place on one side, leaving some exposed to use as the hanger
glue the front and back (wrong side) together, with your ribbon sandwiched in between.

During the Christmas season, I will be creating more gift tags, Christmas stationery, and all kinds of art for you to use.  You can give the art as gifts, decorate your home or use on your Christmas crafts and cards.  If you miss a day, just click on this page, and you can see all the posts and artwork at a glance.

You can also find all of the artwork on my Pinterest Board called An Advent Calendar of Downloadable Artwork.  If you click the artwork that you like, it will lead you back here with the link to the download.

Lovely! And a beautiful wreath, too. Say, Karen, do you have a button for this series or can I just steal a photo? I'd like to link to you on my front page for this series.
