CELEBRATIONS: Brown Paper Packages Advent
Phew… I barely finished this year’s Advent Countdown in time. We’re on day 2 so I probably should have had this all done a week ago. But a week ago I was thinking about turkey and stuffing. With not much time, I went with a simple concept this year inspired by the classic lyrics “brown paper packages tied up with string…”
Each little package contains a small goodie: gum, stickers, a tiny toy or candy.
The brown paper is recycled packing paper that I ironed to smooth out the wrinkles.
Red & white baker’s twine is perfect for these tiny little packages.
The countdown numbers were created in Word and I used my favorite 1 inch circle punch to quickly cut the circles.
It doesn’t seem possible that it’s the holiday season and the countdown has begun…
Are you ready? Because before you know it… it will be Christmas Eve.
