Advent-ures #1

With 109 days left until the big day, I’m very keen to start theming the house, but it’s still a little early. (Even for me!)

In the meantime I’ve been keeping myself busy by creating advent calendars and other bits and pieces. Below is the advent calendar I’ve made for my mum.

Advent Calendar


I used small flat bottomed bags, and cut the numbers with my Cricut – each set of 6 bags has a slightly different paper pattern. The bags are held closed with small wooden pegs. I haven’t ‘sealed’ the bags so they can be reused.

I filled the bags with things my mum likes – coffee, skin care and nail treatments, and chocolates. There is also a small handmade gift in the first bag.


I'd love to hear your thoughts
