Advent Envelopes

Yesterday I posted all of the activities I put inside our Advent envelopes, which means all that’s left to say is how I made our calendar!

I found a template online and used Microsoft Word to size it to a height of four inches.

My first thought was to trace the template 27 times, but laziness won out and that plan was quickly abandoned.  I instead cut out 4″ squares and used the template as a guide to cut notches into the sides of the paper.

Though it would have been better looking, I didn’t round the corners.  (Again, lazy.)  A few folds later…

An envelope!  I placed an activity (handwritten on a small card) in each envelope and strung them all up on the banister. Voila!
