I made this advent calendar for my nephew. He likes hot air balloons, so I was happy to find this paper with Santa in a balloon at Alpha Stamps. The drawers have various tiny toys and some candies. I hope he likes it!



I signed the back later.

Thanks! I love this kit, you can make so many different styles. I am making one for my Mom now using an old family photo.

Thanks! I hope so! He is 5 now, and it's not very little-kid-ish, but I am hoping that he will still use it when he's too old for a more baby-ish style.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

I adore this. It's nice that he'll be able to use the calendar year after year and think of you each time! I have to get some of those numbers. They look perfect!
