Doodlebug Design | Candy Cane Lane Advent Calendar Train

Every year I love making a new Advent Calendar with Doodlebug's Christmas Collection.  This year I worked with Lori Whitlock to come up with this fun train SVG... and I'm so happy with how it turned out using the Candy Cane Lane Collection!  Take a peek...

I started with this SVG file from Lori Whitlock.  I made the base of the train with white cardstock.  I then started decorating with the papers and embellishments from Candy Cane Lane.

I made Santa the conductor, of course!  I used the Sweet Santa Stand Alone Doodle Cuts to make him.  I also decorated the sides of the conductor's box with cute presents from the Odds & Ends.

I covered each of the 24 boxes with papers from the 6x6 pad.  I used the new Alphabet Soup Puffy Stickers to number my boxes.  The wheels also have some sprinkles in their centers.  To embellish a bit more, I added more Odds & Ends to some of the boxes.  The boxes are a good size I could fit 3 candies in each.

The other side of the train was decorated in the same manner.  I have a fun trick I used to make my Santa show the same from both sides of the train... I cut one Santa and all his pieces from  my papers.  Then, I turned those papers over and cut a second set of pieces.  This gives you a mirror image of your first set to glue back to back so you can have him look the same on both sides!

The front of my train was decorated with a star from the icon stickers sheet and I made some snowflake "smoke puffs" using the snowflake dies in the Snow Cute Stand Alone Doodle Cuts.

Luckily I didn't eat all the candy before it was time to fill the boxes!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
