DIY: minimal advent calendar

DIY: minimal advent calendar

Maybe some of you remember last years DIY advent calendar? Well, of course I had to dug these envelopes up again! Okay okay, I admit: mostly because I’m lazy. But also because all those tiny little envelopes look so cute together and are really easy to style. Last year I attached them to a DIY rack, this year to some simple rope. This Monday will be the first day of the advent calendar (how can it be December already?!) and I’m all set.

How to make your own?
1. Find a place were you can attach or hang the envelopes. This year I used rope, but the rack that I made last year was perfect to serve as a base as well.
2. Print the little advent envelopes.
3. Cut out the envelopes, fold them and tape the two flaps at the back together.
4. I used tape to attach them to the rope and last year I used foldback / binder clips (bought at Tiger Store) to attach them to the rack.

All that’s left now is filling them with chocolates, sweet notes and other stuff!
