{last minute advent calendar}

November 27, 2012

December is approaching fast and it’s time to count down the days to Christmas. There’s nothing sweeter (literally) than counting down using an advent calendar.

If you’re looking for a nifty & thrifty advent calendar, this is the one for you! ;) Chances are that you might even have all the supplies on hand.

What you’ll need:

  • card stock of the color of your choice
  • scissors
  • border punch (or crazy scissors)
  • hole punch
  • ribbon
  • washi tape
  • candy

I’m partying here! ❤
