I’ve been wanting to make an Advent Calendar for my family for some time now. The past few years I’ve been trying to figure out how to do it, and then Stampin’ Up came out with this set and I knew I’d found what I was looking for. I purchased some small Chinese food takeout boxes at our Bellevue Cash & Carry store, and thought I’d share with you how I’m dressing them up. Using punches, paper, and this one stamp set, I’ve created some fun decorated boxes for each day leading up to Jesus’ birth. I’ll share a picture of the whole calendar hung up from our mantle in a future post. Here are the first six days up close. Have a wonderful day!
