Picture of Easy, fast and beautiful Advent Calendar
Time flies, and it’s only a little more than a month until Christmas. If you need a last-minute advent calendar which is easy to make, looks great and doesn’t cost a fortune, go on reading:

Step 1: What you need

The basis for each calendar is a simple 12×12 sheet of scrapbooking paper glued to a 12×12 piece of sturdy cardboard. As I love to repurpose stuff, I use old covers of vinyl records ;)

You further need:
paper glue
scissors, cutter knife, cutting mat
a 3/4 inch circle punch or stamps/stickers with numbers
thin ribbon
hole punch, for example the Crop-a-Dile
24 printed stories/recipes/quotes
if you like, my file with premade numbers

Very nice Instructable!  Just thought I would suggest entering it in the office contest.  I think it might qualify!

Thanks for the info - it didn't occur to me that I'm using office supplies in this project, but I guess you could say so. I'll try my luck :D
I think it will qualify but I am not sure. It is worth a try and the more entries the better the prize and the more winners! I wish you the best!
That's really cute! I've never seen an advent calendar with little gifts on it before :)

Thanks :)

In Germany it's very common to have an advent calendar with small gifts. I guess it's comparable to the American "stockings hanging from the mantelpiece" tradition. If you do a Google image search on the German term "Adventskalender", you'll see hundreds of gorgeous ideas ;)
