Handmade Advent calendar, part two.

Hello everyone! :) Some days ago I posted photos of the pretty Advent calendar I made for Flo and here's a second one, a calendar I made for Anja. :) It was soooo cute how happy, thankful and surprised both of them were and it was totally worth the effort!!! :*
For Flo's calendar I chose red, green, white and cream but this time, I wanted to make it a bit more girly and also used turquoise and pink for Anja's version.
Like it also did it with Flo's calendar, I sewed gift bags, wrapped tiny presents in packaging paper and also used white envelopes and paper bags which I embellished with handmade Christmas stamps. I used clothes pins and washi tape (courtesy of modes 4u, thank you! :)) to attach the numbers which I wrote onto paperboard I punched out.
What is more, I also added some cinnamon sticks and a candy cane.
So happy about how prettily it has turned out! :)
Because it was a gift and I couldn't simply walk into Anja's house and nail the calendar onto her walls without ruining the surprise, I was thinking about another solution and then I decided to put everything into a little box which I had decorated with wrapping paper. I love it!

Are you making any Advent calendars this year? ;)
