I made this for my children after a disappointing attempt to find customizable advent calendar. I didn't want to go with the cheap box of chocolate with the little tear open windows.  I saw some at a department store that was a box with little drawers or doors to open, but they didn't seem very sturdy and were barely big enough for two tic tacs, hardly worth the $30-$50 dollars they were charging.   The pyramid boxes found at the dollar store were my inspiration.  I filled them with finger puppets and candy(buttons, necklaces, suckers and mini chocolate bars) and hung them some dollar store garland.  Added stickers numbered 1-24 and let the count down begin.
