Inkling: advent calendar book


It’s time!  If you’re counting down the days until Christmas, it’s time to break out the advent calendar.

Back before Thanksgiving, I created an envelope garland and I received many comments suggesting I use the envelopes for an advent calendar. Since I had already made a garland from the envelopes, I decided to do something a little different for an advent calendar.


I made an advent booklet. Each page has an envelope marked with the date. In each envelope is tucked a coupon good for a treat.

Treats can be anything – candy, extra play time or a special outing.

Stay tuned as we count down the days until Christmas. I have a lot of holiday projects to share with you.
