IT’S EASY WHEN YOU KNOW HOW!

  • Prior to use, shake the paint markers well with the cap on (the mixing balls must be clearly audible). Then remove the cap and pump the tip on a neutral surface a few times until the ink becomes visible. Finally, test the pen on a piece of paper and you’re ready to go!

How it is done:

  • Start by folding back the two top corners of the bags to create the shape of a little house.
  • Then turn the paper bags round and draw ornate windows, doors and stucco designs on the front with the Deco Painter. You can use a ruler or other aid if necessary but free-hand drawings have a quainter feel.
  • To add the numbers to the bags, draw a circle on the roof area of each bag in which a number can be written.
  • Unfold the bags again and add the Advent gifts. Next, fold back the corners again to re-create the roof and secure in place with a little adhesive film.
