It’s Begining to Look A LOT Like Christmas!!! PPA13 #3

I couldn’t help myself. I have been working feverishly on my blog and other projects this weekend and couldn’t wait to post this PPA13 idea, consider it a sneak preview. This will be a Crafty Kit Bits that will be available for purchase coming soon to my blog. I will give more details about that in an upcoming post, but for today’s purposes it is simply a fun project to see.
I started making these almost 2 years ago, and you can see my first (not so impressive) attempts at this brain child on SplitCoastStampers. I don’t have a gallery there but if you do a search for Advent Calendar you will find it. I think these are great gift items and SUPER FUN to create.

The tag at the top is so fun, I mean come on- isn’t everything better with glitter?! OF COURSE!!!!
The days are numbered and you can place candies, notes, fun project ideas or service projects jotted down that the entire family can do. It is fun uncovering a new item each day! The best part is that unlike traditional paper advent calendars there is NO SEARCHING for the day you are to uncover, those darn advents are so hard for me to locate each day- I am WAY to anal retentive for those paper calendars (but my kids love ’em).

I hope you enjoyed this little project and don’t forget to enter into the blog candy drawing, simply leave me a comment letting me know what your favorite project is on THAT post. See you in a few~ TTFN
