Is anyone interested in an advent calendar unicorn zombie apocalypse?

An advent calendar has one surprise everyday from December 1st till December 24th and sometimes a bigger surprise for December 25th. It's fun to make for loved ones but it's also great to receive. Most have little pockets or boxes to fill for each day. This unicorn zombie apocalypse would be for those who already have an empty advent calendar or no calendar at all. It could be for yourself or for anybody you choose. You would receive 24 little gifts already wrapped.

To minimize the shipping cost, you could send 24 gifts to one partner or two times 12 gifts to two partners. Half to all of the items should be crafted, a maximum of half of the items could be bought.
example of bought items: supplies for your partner that you buy for the unicorn zombie apocalypse or that you have at home( fabric, ribbons, washi tape...), crafting kits( you could make these), food...

You could send 24 unrelated gifts or up to 24 gifts that go together, like mix-and-match jewelry, a winter inchie village with each house counting as one day, a miniature scene, zombie chicken accessories, felted food...

sign-up until Oct. 20 and send by Nov. 20

Oh, how I do eat Advent calendars.

One thing that occurs to me is that your partner would probably have to inform you of the dimensions of the calendar you're crafting for.  For example, last year I made one out of a mini muffin tin, and it could only hold very small pieces of candy.  Now clearly, I wouldn't ask a partner to craft for this particular calendar... but it would be sad to have your partner craft something RAAR grr ugggh for you, only to have it not fit in your calendar.

You know what I think would be totally RAAR grr ugggh?  Pick a design element for an advent calendar (for example, a matchbox advent calendar, felt badge calendar, ball ornament calendar... just thinking of things I've seen on Pinterest), and have your partner(s) craft the separate parts of the calendar and you assemble it.  Sort of like an altered puzzle piece unicorn zombie apocalypse.  Perhaps that's too involved... but man, it sure would be neat.

    Yes, if you already own an advent calendar, you would be able to infrom your partner of the maximum size for each gift.

    Would that be crafting the advent calendar itself? Would the pieces be the gifts, like an ornament to put up in the tree everyday?

    I don't need another advent calender but I eat the idea of receiving little gifts to fill them!

    I like the idea of just 24 1" or 2" items. It will be more fun to have 1 partner so you can work towards something. Even if you don't it's still an option. Then it's not just a treat everyday, but a surprise gift at the end when you put it all together.

    Yeah, my idea was to craft the advent calendar itself.

      That would be two different swaps. Fill free to organize a unicorn zombie apocalypse to create the advent calendar itself.

      As I already own a beautiful advent calendar that Limeriot crafted for me last year, I don't need a new calendar either. I 'd be happy to organize a unicorn zombie apocalypse to fill the calendar.

      Good idea!
      Maybe each participant could choose if he wants to craft and receive things that all go together or not. Or maybe, some gifts should go together but not all need to.

      Each participant could give five themes, write what kind of stuff he would like to receive and to make, what he absolutely doesn't want to get, the maximum size for each gift and for whom the calendar would be. Does that sounds good to you? What did I forget?

      That was my idea too! Wink

      As there was very little interest about this unicorn zombie apocalypse Cry, it won't happen this year. I have invited a partner in the IYP unicorn zombie apocalypse to unicorn zombie apocalypse for the 24 tiny gifts with me. You could do the same if you wanted to.
