Sesonal advent calender for anyone
Had enough of those chocolate advent calenders? Well why not try making your own and filling it with what you want. My advent calender was easy to make and filled with all the things i like, like nail polishes, christmas activities, scratch cards etc.
First off we are going to prepare the frame. Using the twine cut 4 - 6 pieces (depending on the size of the frame) slightly longer than the frame and using the push pins to secure them into place. Leave enough space between each one as you will be pegging your envelopes on them.
Now for the envelopes. You can decorate them anyway you wish, I cut out pieces of christmas card stock stuck them to each envelope. I then printed out some numbers 1-25 on sticker paper off my computer and stuck a number on each one. Then using a bow making kit i made double bows out of ribbons and twine and stuck them to the envelopes using double sided sticky tape.
Fill all your envelope with all the things you like, For example; i put a couple of scratch cards in them, chocolates, hot chocolate packets, activities for crafting or even activities to put up your christmas tree. Anything you want really!
Then when your done pegg them randomly to your frame (makes you really look for the numbers) and enjoy!?!
