Hobby Hump Day – Our Advent Calendar

Before the kids were born JT and I purchased an advent calendar for our future. I purchased this calendar/box from Restoration Hardware (ours is red and this one is from Target but it looks almost identical to this one):

Little did I know we would have this calendar for several years, I had hoped but who knew. Well I pulled it out this year and thought it just looked a little bland so I set to work with my scrapbooking supplies. Look at how it turned out. I couldn’t be more proud of my work.

Here are some close ups of the doors:

I also created an advent calendar for one of J’s teachers and one for a hostess gift for my aunt (so no pictures of that one). Here are the pictures of the cookie tray advent calendar I made. I got the idea from Pink Paislee’s blog.

All of the 25 pieces are magnetic and can be moved to reveal the numbers 1-25. It was a lot of work and cost a little more than I anticipated but I am was really happy with the results. I originally was going to give one away on my blog but the money I put into making 3 of these calendars I kind of decided not too. Sorry.
