My Advent Calendar

Every where I look someone is making an advent calendar. I love the one that Beate did for her tutorial on SCS, and might have to make it once we move to our new house (Beate's Advent Calendar). But for now I needed one that was small, easy to make, and portable (since we are moving in 2 weeks). When I was putting up the Christmas presents that I bought today I found a bag with 3 Target Dollar Bin Mailboxes from last January in it. I thought these would be perfect, and I had enough to make one for each kid so there would be no fighting. Baker even thought they were great.


Recipe:
Paper: Provo Craft Holiday Slab IV , SU whispering white, and Real Red
Stamps: Alphadots (retired) and Perfect Presentation (hostess set) both Stampin Up
Ink: Real Red
Other: Crystal Effects, double sided tape, glass pebbles

Two weeks and you're moving? How do you have the time? You must be at your wit's end. These are darling and I'll bet the kids love them.
