- Mini white gift boxes
- 24 bottlebrush trees
- Glue gun
- Cricut Explore Air 2 Machine (optional) or number stickers
- Gold adhesive foil
- Small toys, candy, and gifts
STEP 1. Assemble the boxes. Add a big drop of hot glue on the bottom of a mini tree, and place in the center top of each box.
STEP 2. I used my Cricut Explore Air 2 Machine to cut out my gold number stickers, but if you don’t have a Cricut machine, you can just use number number stickers.
If you choose to use a Cricut machine, you can use this file in Design Space. The design costs 99 cents but was totally worth it to have all the numbers 1-24 all ready to go. I’ve also sized the numbers to fit perfectly on each box. Follow the prompts to cut the numbers from Gold adhesive foil.
STEP 3. Add the stickers to the front bottom right corner of each box.
STEP 4. Fill up each box with small toys, candy, and little gifts.
You can line these advent calendar boxes up on a mantle, a shelf, or scatter them under the tree for some Christmas fun all month!
