2. Cut your squares.I have 24 solid red cardstock squares and 6 different prints (4 of each) in Christmas-y scrapbook squares. My red cardstock is 2 1/4 inches squared and my scrapbook papers are 2 inches squared. I used my corner rounder for all the edges too.
3. Glue your scrapbook papers to your cardstock and embellish the heck out of them! I started by distressing them with some distressing ink. Then I put some cute Christmas tree stickers and buttons. Then I cut out some vinyl numbers and stuck those on them too. (If you don’t have vinyl, use a sharpie!)
5. Fill it up!What would an advent calendar be without a surprise lurking behind the hidden doors? The problem with this is I have 3 kids and those little muffin tins are too teeny to fit a whole lot of anything in them, unless I wanted to fill them with 3 Tic-Tacs! As much as my kids would love to get a piece of candy each night, I cut strips of paper and wrote a certain fun Christmas-related activity for each of us to do together every night as we countdown til Christmas! My oldest even helped me think of some ideas and he got all excited to start this 24-day activity!
