Christmas is coming!



I made this advent calendar for my granddaughters. I used a cookie sheet and Doodlebug papers, ribbon and stickers. I had my husband drill 2 holes in the top and knotted ribbon through to make a hanger. I then used red tape to attach the paper to the cookie sheet. The squares are punched from pattern paper and run through my zyron. I cut the hangers off of mini ornaments and glued magnets to the back. You can use it one of 2 ways. Leave the ornaments on the front and take one off each day or put on one ornament each day. The ornaments store on the back of the cookie sheet - pretty slick.

I like your concept. I think I've seen one that someone I know has made and liked it so I think that I'll put this on my list of things to make this year for Christmas. Perhaps have my kids make one each as well to put away for when they're on their own.

Thanks for the great idea. :-)

Oh, I got to your site via the Organized Home's sister site of the Organized Christmas (I think that is where I came from).
