Advent Calendar!

I folded the boxes out of patterned cardstock by getting the idea from this link. I played around with different sizes and mostly eye-balled it.

I used the Cricut cartridge Designers Calendar to cut out the numbers with the Post-It self adhesive paper. I used doubled stick tape to attach the boxes together. I also used the Post-It paper to wrap all around the box to hold all of the boxes securely. Then as a finishing touch I wrapped it in ribbon and topped it with a handmade bow.

I was thinking of putting little pieces of candy in each box and then a big piece for box #25.

That is really neat but looks like a lot of work. I would have to put candy in each one and then eat it everyday
