Advent is a fun activity for many families, and it is a huge part of the Christmas tradition for my the family of my fellow chicken in the Crafty Coop – Meg.
We thought it would be fun to make reusable advent calendars for families to use to create or enhance their own Advent tradition. These calendars are larger than average to fill with a variety of gift options: puzzle pieces, candy, ornaments, notes, toys, activities, or whatever your imagination can fit into 25 4-inch cubed boxes.
Each of the calendars we made was unique. We enjoyed the opportunity to create calendars that were both traditional and whimsical for our clientele.
This floral design uses golden patterned paper for the flowers, black numbers, and deep green leaves. To finish the calendar and hold all the boxes together we created our own custom container box and finished it all with a coordinating ribbon and bow.
We made a variety of other designs including: trees, santa’s belt buckles, ornaments, snowflakes, and gingerbread houses.
