1  The most stress-free advent calendar ever! (IMG OBESE) in Winter Holidays by sushiholic 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!!

Can we have a lil close up of the zippered pouch? is it all zippers??

10  ADVENT CALENDARS!!!! (A crafting virgin's first project!!) in Winter Holidays by sushiholic on: December 07, 2007 10:20:49 AM
I decided to make an advent calendar as my first crafting project EVER!!!
I was inspired by burstandbloom. visit her advent calendar for a MUCH better version!!!

So I made 2 calendars that look almost identical. One for my family and one for my family friends. For my friends', I cut out circles and secured each door with a corkboard pin. Inside each door was a clay object and each day had a corresponding present!
For my family, I cut out squares and secured it all with hot glue and velcro. The actual gift are in each door for this calendar.
Hope you like my first project. tell me what you think!!
