I made this advent calendar shortly before Ema's was born, and I can't wait to use it! I used Martha Stewart wedding favor boxes and put Christmas scrapbook paper in each box. I cut the paper to fit the boxes and since it fit perfectly, I didn't have to use glue or tape. I put stickers with the numbers on the outside of each box. The idea for this advent calendar came from my bff, Emily. Thanks, EB! I hope this advent calendar will hold up better than last year's, and I can't wait to start this year's advent activities! I am planning to do many of the same activities that we did last year with a few new additions.
Edit to add: I forgot to say that I put magnets on the back so we can keep the advent calendar on the side of the refrigerator (it's on the refrigerator in the picture). I used sticky back magnet tape, and it didn't work very well (it wasn't strong enough), so I'm going to upgrade to stronger magnets that I bought from Hobby Lobby. The tins came from the wedding section at Walmart.
