Scrapbook paper advent boxes
Count down to Christmas and celebrate advent with these scrapbook paper gift boxes! Use glossy paper, ribbon and little bells to create these luxury gift packages. Craft a gift box for each of the 4 advent Sundays and fill with a personalised gift. The recipient can open one of these festive boxes every Sunday in the run-up to Christmas. Together with the tray, the four little boxes form an advent calendar that will look stunning in your interior space or on your counter.
