i’m all over the place right now. sometimes people find crafty ideas and tell me “you should make this.” my response usually is: “YOU should make that!” last year i really felt like if i could make a bajillion crafts to sell, i’d sell em. and i did, but i was also able to get a good backstock. over the past year i really haven’t made much other than perpetual calendars and clothespins. this year as the holidays are on approach, i feel confident that i won’t have to be up every night until 3:00 cutting and pasting. and i have time to make some other things. someone i know from online sent me a link to an advent calendar just as a “hey. look how cool this is,” but i took it as a “omg, i have to make something kinda like that!”
like the original, i removed a row of the pokey things on the holder and had 25 spaces.
i used Bazzill cardstock and scrapbooking papers by 3 Bugs in a Rug and Bo Bunny, paper punches, and some little epoxy stickers from Little Yellow Bicycle…
the sides on mine don’t tear away, so there’s no treats or tasks involved – but i think for toddlers and preschoolers, the joy of knowing Christmas is day closer is reward enough!
i’ve got one more set ready to be made, i’m deciding on the supplies right now. Currently, this one is for sale on etsy.
