Advent Calendars

Advent Calendars with small packages…
Never start with this if you have more children than one! It takes ages to wrap 48 small packets and then tie a string on each so they can be attached to the rings.  Yes, they did actually get a package each every day in December until Christmas eve when they where younger.

I made this calendar from a material kit bought from Panduro.

This calendar I made from a picture I saw in a craft supply catalogue. Everything didn’t turn out exactly as in the catalogue but I think my calendar looks much better. I made some very small cross stitches designs on microscopically small aida.
