Celebrate : (photo) advent calendar (book)

Posted by

As I mentioned before, every year I collect photos to put into an advent calendar for my mom. But even though I think about it all year,  I always feel in a rush to get it out on time, as the season creeps up too quickly. And I have to be able to send it in the mail too. Luckily  I had a photo album from Muji in my stash, and scraps of papers too. Advent saved.

advent2The photos are hidden under the colored papers on the right side of the book. A small red circle office supply sticker, with the number of the day written in white gel pen, shows you which one you can open today.

advent3When the page is flipped, the left side would show the back of the photos, so instead I covered those with pretty paper as well.

The paper scraps have a double life - not only do they serve as 'wrapping' for the photos, but they  have a second life as a postcard. I simply glued them onto the same sticky postcards I showed you in this post.

Happy Advent !
