It’s your old friend Lizzie here with a fun little Holiday Craft idea! We see all these amazing crafts, cards, centerpieces and ornaments all over the interwebz this time of year, and of course we only wish we had the time to even complete one of those! And don’t even get me started on the Elf on a Shelf peeps. I’m a super busy momma, so I need a super easy and quick way to kick off the holiday crafting season. Insert my idea for an Envelope Advent Calendar!
I used a variety of envelopes from the CCS shop as well as CardStock (all listed below of course). Just cut, glue, and add some stickers and embellishments. I swear, it couldn’t be any more easy! And a bonus… the more colors and designs you have, the more eclectic it will look and the more ooohs and aaahhhs you will get every morning when you open up a new envelope.
The only hard about this project is finding something worthy enough to put these gorgeous envies in!
Bonus: Use this idea to store your Elf on a Shelf daily ideas and letters! See, who says being prepared isn’t fun. And now you can be the Elf Envy of your neighbors!
