Christmas Advent Calendar

Christmas Advent Calendar.
Thank you Jeaneen!
Jeaneen a local MD lady gave me this really cute Making Memories Advent kit. Really cool and what a time saver this is!
Jeaneen doesn't have a blog or I would link you to her now sorry but you can look her up on SCS as JTAX.
Ok to the project...We countdown to Christmas so that's why my numbers are the way they are. My kids like all kids I'm sure ask everyday How many days till Christmas. This is how I deal with this question. It's what works for them. I wanted to keep it pretty simple so we could focus on the number and not the pretty stuff so that's why so little embellishments. This is a good size box I was able to get two small candy items in each drawer one for each of my boys so worked out great. This is by Making Memories I have no idea where Jeaneen found it but I'm sure it's online and in big box stores. The name is Fa La La Advent Calendar box and came with the ribbon, rub-ons, and brads. The only thing I added was the Prima flowers because we could still see the number the kit came with paper poinsettia flowers so you really don't have to buy anything with this kit.
Extras used Red Liner Tape, and my crop-a-dile, star dust pen, my bow maker.
Merry Christmas countdown to all!
