1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / The most stress-free advent calendar ever! (IMG OBESE) on: November 25, 2008 01:33:28 PM
Hey all!
I made another advent calendar this year. I started hunting for ideas back to october for advents. I searched everywhere and was almost going to pay someone on etsy to build one for me! nothing seemed right- or cheap enough!

So i decided to make it the stress- free way, by just wrapping 24 presents. That's all.

It turned out to be such a good idea because we can take them with us to open them even while we're away for the weekend. Enough talk onto the photos!

Group shots:
All tags stamped by me.


Take out boxes! If you don't want to wrap 25 presents, I HIGHLY suggest these. It made my job so much easier- and 8 less presents to wrap! I think they're so cute

Some presents even have little jingle bells!

Storing them on the window sill

And just 2 more of my favorite ones..



If anyone's interested as to what's inside, I stuffed them with Willams Sonoma chocolate  strawberry bites, baby candy canes, holiday tissues (for the runny nosed people), dollar store things, things from 5 and below (BEST store ever) and puzzle pieces. I bought a Christmas puzzle from the dollar store and distributed pieces throughout the boxes!!

Hey all,

I made 2 advent calendars last year out of styrofoam, but this year, i want to make a permanent calendar. I was thinking wood and without doors. Kind of like this one: http://www.designmom.com/2007/12/ask-design-mom-advent-calendars.html
I LOOOVE it!!! and i would buy it from Pottery barn and then paint it myself, but it's 2 years old!
Any suggestions as to how to go about doing it would be great!

Here are mine from last year:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=212586.msg2282640#msg2282640

Oh and i already thought about 25 little individual boxes but that would get pricey and annoying

Thanks!!

hey there craftsters,

i had no idea what i want to make my best friend for his birthday.
it obviously needs to be homemade  Cheesy
He LOOOOVES nessie/ loch ness monster, but i'm not sure what to make him. i posted the question here because i thought about making a plushie (seen some here on craftster) but i don't think that's quite the right gift for him.
it's too hot for a scarf and i want his gift to be useful  Tongue
