Well here we are – the FINAL project in A Month of Christmas! Thanks so much for joining me each day – I hope you have found something to inspire your Christmas creating this year!
We have not done any kind of Christmas Advent before as my girls were a little young to understand, but this year they are both at great ages! Here is the Advent Envelope Tree I have created for them to enjoy.
This project was actually really quick to create thanks to our Crumb Cake & Notecard Envelopes, and also the wonderful Envelope Punch Board!
Each envelope contains a Christmas activity for the girls to complete that day! These range from decorating the tree, reading the Christmas story and making cards for Grandparents, all the way through to giving to a charity, doing Christmas crafts and enjoying Christmas treats. It will hopefully help them pass the time until Santa visits!
As envelopes get opened I will remove them and store them away for next year, and shuffle all the remaining envelopes across the tree.
Well that brings me to the end of A Month of Christmas. I hope you will continue to visit through the rest of the year as I share more papercrafting inspiration!
