Here is my take on your fabulous idea


here is a close-up on some of my windows.  I only have a camera phone--thus the bad pics.  PLus I don't know if these pics will post since this is a newbies first  attempt.


Love is soo lovely

I made a few lazy/newbie modifications.  First off, I definitely went with square windows vs. circles.  Also, I tried to use your dimensions but it never grid-ed out like yours.  It was too cramped (Mine are 18 x 24 x 2) I believe.  My windows are about 1.75in and 2.5 in.  I did it a while ago so now I am actually forgetting--plus I am expecting, so I am a lil loopy minded Wink  I opted for various Christmas themed window boxes instead of decorated ornaments since my windows are squared--giving the illusion of presents.  I used simple silver sticker numbers and a satin spray as a finish( It was all I had laying around--prob would have preferred a high gloss.  Mod podge is not my friend, My paper did not take to it at all--in its defence I have never used the stuff before, and I grabbed the matte finish kind vs gloss.  So I used a combo of a glue gun and heavy duty spray adhesive--this is a god send!!!    Your idea, photos, and tut were so appreciated.  I had run out of Christmas gift ideas until this.  Hope you and your hunny are still going strong!

I wish my boyfriend would either appreciate that if I made him one or make me one.

Neither is going to happen.

I live in hope.

Your boyfriend is so LUCKY!

This is so cool! I have been looking around for advent calendar ideas because I wanted to make one, and so far yours is definitely the best. I love all the little things you put inside. My only other idea was to make 25 little stockings out of felt and string them on a cord, and have candy in each one. I think that was a project on the Jo-Ann Fabrics website. But I will definitely be making this instead! Thanks for the tutorial.  Grin
