A cute little "word banner". I used a chipboard book by Maya Road. It actually comes with 6 pages but I took it down to 3. Added some patterned paper, letters cut with my Cricut, some ribbon, flowers, brads, and some buttons.
This Advent calendar was alot of fun to make. I cut out small envelopes (using the die-cut machine at my LSS). I then covered each one with some patterned paper. I covered a 12x12 piece of chipboard with a coordinating paper and then attached the envelopes in a tree shape. I then decorated each of the envelopes and numbered them 1-25. Inside each envelope is a different activity. Some of the activities are to do charitable acts for others, and some are more personal. I then added some ribbon as a hanger.
