Amazing advent calendar that is the Christmas Countdown project kit. I am in love with this kit. It is super sturdy, very festive and so simple to assemble. You will want to have one for all your little one and maybe for the adult also.
Lets just say that I order one for all my great nieces and nephew. Yap that is how much I love these advent calendar. So I say get them now before they sell out. After people see them I bet it will sell like hot cake.
My kids had a advent calendar since they were very little. I am guessing 1 and 3. A great friend Reiko made one for both kids and I was hook. Each year I would make sure to filed the little box. Now I will make them one of these to replace the well worn one that been used for and years.
I have the video below in this post and also you can view on my You Tube Channel.
Not much to explain about the assembling. The box with all the little box inside, come already assemble. Yes all assemble. The only thing you have to do is, adhere the pre cut designer paper onto the front of the pull out box, adhere the extra elements and the numbers that come printed on the circle. So little to do and easy.
In the video I have a few tips about assemble and mixing the prints so you don’t get all green in a bunch and such.
What size it is
- Outer box: 11-3/16″ x 11-3/16″ x 2-3/16″
- Mini box: 2-1/8″ x 2-1/8″ x 2-1/16″
Its truly a nice size and well build for a paper project.
Do you need the stamp set?
I will be honest here about if you need the stamp set or not. On my project I only stamped on box #1, 3, 11, 17, 19 the was it. The paper come already with lovely prints. If you wish you can add stamp image like the wood grain paper. So in short the choice is yours. If you have to choose between the stamp or a extra box for a little one, get that box for the little one, that will make is day.
I listed in the supplies below if you wish to add some stamping.
The little copper star I added them on the printed trees. I love this little add on that I did but also optional. I bet many will add many more embellishment, the choice is yours. Simple and beautiful that what is this project.
The main thing that you need to assemble and finish your project are the liquid glue and it would be great to get some dimensional to pop up the number.
More to way to utilize these boxes
I heard many other way that people are using this lovely box. You can decorate both side so you can use it for different occasion.
Here are some ideas.
- Can be use for Thanksgiving countdown. Starting on November 3rd have everyone in the household writing something they are thankful for and at Thanksgiving you can reveal all the sweet note inside each box. A great way to digest all the food.
- Use it in your craft room to store your embellishments.
- To store buttons.
- Great for Washi Tape. Just put a piece of washi tap on the out side so you know which one is inside each box. You can fit about 3 rolls in each.
I am sure it is many other use for this sturdy box. I plan on having one for my embellishment. I think this will help me get organize plus if I glue one of the embellishment in the front of the box it will be so easy to see.
