Most of us know and love the Christmas Countdown Calendar. The exiting and magical feeling when opening a new door every day and unwrapping the gift or piece of candy inside. Yes, I still do that 😉
In Denmark we also count the 4 Sundays before Christmas – Sunday in Advent and for some this is when they get their present. In my home my kids get to chose if they want a small thing every day until Christmas or something larger every Sunday. They’ve gone with the latter 😉
I thought that when bringing a hostess gift along when visiting friends or Family this November, it could be a Advent Gift Box and I found just the things for it at Simply Crafty Svgs.
This is the Square Candy Box. Just the perfect size for my idea 🙂
I made it with AC Cardstock in Slate, White and Shrimp along with patterned paper from DCWVs Merry and Bright stack.
I needed inserts to divide it into four, so I simply adjusted the inserts and added two more to put my small Curved Treat Boxes (freebie) in.
I used the Foil Quill and cobber foil for the numbers (Silhouette Design Store ID #105652 by Sarah Hurley) and tied them onto the small boxes (downsized to 70% to fit all 4 on one piece of cardstock)
Inside the treat boxes I hid the treats 😉 Yummy chocolate from Danish Royal Court Supplier Anton Berg.
The last thing I want to mention is the twine used to wrap around the box and the small tag that I cut out of the DCWV stack.
This surely is a bold color for Christmas but I love it and I bet whom ever gets this box is going to love it too.
I’m so sorry for the quality of the pictures but it’s practically impossible to get good lighting here in my new townhouse this time of year and I still have to get myself some professional lights – when that million bucks lands in my mailbox 😉
Thanks for joining me today. So much fun to begin the Christmas crafting. I have soooo much I wanna make and soooo little time 😀 How about you? Have you begun your Christmas crafting yet?
