As promised, the Christmas Calendar DIY:P
That is the calendar that I made for my boyfriend this year:)I am really proud of the result and he was really happy about the gesture and my effort I put in it:)
Here are some things you need in order to prepare it:
24 envelopes, different sizes or what I did was to cut the small envelopes in two and have them in half
Some Christmas paper that you can use as a background
White A3 Paper, I put together 4 pieces of A3 paper in order to get the size
I also needed some colorful paper to make it more cheerful
24 Christmas socks, those ones are textile and I have not bought them but of course you can use whatever you want to draw the numbers
That is the actual process, for me it took time because I have had a lot of classes so I did not have that much time to do it so I use only my evenings but can be done in a day of course.
This step was the most challenging for me as it represents all the presents. I first did not think about how I am going to fit them in my calendar so it was pretty difficult to place all the present at one and the same time. I am putting now every day a present in, or a clue where to find it:)
What can you put in the calendar?
I used different candy of course, games, socks etc. You can get all the inspiration you need, stopping by the local supermarkets etc.
I hope you enjoyed it:)
