I made this advent countdown to Christmas calendar for my friend who has an early December birthday and loves Christmas. This project was so fun to make and it features the 25 Days #135041 stamp set and the Under the Tree #135825 Specialty DSP from the Stampin Up holiday catalog and a whole bunch of other Stampin Up dies, punches and other embellishments. The foundation of the advent calendar is a mini muffin pan and each day has a special treat and a clue to open a package each day through Christmas.
This project was super fun to create because I knew my friend would love it and love to play along each day. I will post some of the cute handmade items in the special packages that she will be opening through out the month. For the wrapped presents, I used the wonderful Stampin Up Festive Designer Kraft Paper Rolls. The Stampin Up wrapping paper coordinated nicely with the Under the Tree DSP used on the advent calendar proving that more is definitely more!
