Suzie’s top hints & tips
Make an advent calendar with Suzie's help
Fill the boxes with small gifts, chocolates, mini decorations to put on the Christmas tree, or personal messages.
Why not personalise the cover of the advent book with letter stickers spelling out a child’s name?
Instead of mount board, you could upcycle a flattened cardboard box to make your cover.
If you’re using your own Christmas patterned papers, make sure the pattern has small motifs that match the size of the boxes.
This advent calendar would make a wonderful gift for close family and friends – it’s quick and easy to make, too.
Between Christmases, store your advent calendar safely away in bubble wrap to keep it clean – all ready to bring out next year!
