I decided to make my own Advent Calendar this year. I used a couple of great shapes from the Silhouette Online Store to create a cute and original calendar that would be fun for our family to use this Christmas and for many more to come! At the end of the post I’ve linked all the shapes I’ve used if you’d like to purchase them yourself.
First I started with my tree shape and then cut out some small envelopes to act as the “doors” for the numbers for the month.
Then I used the above Merry Christmas saying to put somewhere near the tree for extra cuteness! I really want my daughters to partake in the reading of scriptures for each day this Advent season. I want to create tradition’s for them that they will remember forever.
I rumaged thru my sticker pile and found some Christmasy stickers like the small font sayings and the red stars to keep the doors shut for each day.
It helped to have additional Christmas tree shapes cut out for my little elves to decorate while I worked on my tree
I then hand wrote the scripture verses for each day so that we can open them up and read them as a family.
What sort of Advent and Christmas traditions are you starting this year??
