LET'S GET STARTED!
Download the Dailylike Advent Prisms Template
and print it onto A4 paper. The template includes 25 prisms and 25 joke inserts. We have used plain copy paper for our example and it's best to make sure there is no page scaling when you print.
Use scissors to cut along the solid lines for each of the prisms and joke inserts. Then the colouring is optional but if you want to add some extra colour, now is the time to do it! Here we have used coloured markers.
Take a prism and fold along the dotted lines. Unfold and lay your prism flat with the design facing up. Add double sided tape to the 3 tabs (attach on the same side as the printed design). It helps to trim the tape on diagonals to match the tabs.
Fold in the bottom and side tabs again then peel the backing from the double sided tape. Fold the other half of the prism on top to make a pocket and press firmly along the taped edges.
Gently squeeze the top edges of your pocket to make the prism shape, then pop a joke and treat inside.
Peel off the backing from your top tab and tuck the tab into the prism. Press firmly along the top edge to secure this tab.
Cut a piece of Fabric Tape to 6cm, remove the backing and attach across the top edge of your prism. Repeat for the bottom edge and you have created an Advent Prism!
Do Steps 3 to 7 for each of your cut-out prisms then gather in a basket, string into a garland or place along the mantle for an adorable count down to Christmas Day!
