How to Make 

1. Download your free template and cut out 24 boxes in your chosen colours, glue them together. 

2.Cover the front of the boxes with a square of paper cut to 3.5 x 3.5cms, use a variety of papers to jazz up your calendar.

3.Decorate each box with a numbered tag and we have also used blossoms and chipboard tags to add interest to each box but you can have fun decorating yours and making it personal. 

4.Fill your box with a treat and then use a length of ribbon to tie the boxes closed. 

To assemble the advent calendar, remove the glass from the frame and cut twelve 6x4” pieces of card for the back of the frame. Wrap a length of twine around each of the frame backs and place back in the frame, use the mini pegs to attach two boxes to each window 

Now all you have to do is wait for the 1st of December when you can enjoy all the treats inside, we love this project as the frame can be used after to show off all those precious family memories made over the Christmas period.
