As I've mentioned before, my baby boy went off to boarding school for high school this year. One of the big traditions in our family is the advent calendar, which is a cabinet with small numbered doors. I add things in each compartment for each day. I start by adding the Playmobil nativity set pieces that we've had since the kids were very little. Here are the sheep before I closed the door for them to wait their turn to be revealed.
Fold the two sides against the rectangle first, then fold the bottom up, pressing crisp lines along edges as you fold.
Fold the top edge down last. Then remove the rectangle from the envelope.
Here are all the envelopes stacked up before filling.
I needed a way to seal and number the envelopes, so I decided to use my snowflake paper punch and the scraps left from the envelopes.
He was pretty excited to get them in the mail. I wish I had thought of it earlier so I had time to do this for my niece who is attending Purdue this year as a freshman.
Let me know below in the comments what you think of this project and any other ideas you have for stuffing the envelopes. I will start my list for next year. Feel free to pin this idea to Pinterest.
Tomorrow is the ornament blog hop and I am super excited to show you what I got from my partner!
