We've done some sort of homemade Advent countdown in our house every year and this year will be no different. While our tradition remains the same, the look of it changes from year to year.
This year I'm using these darling little Advent Boxes from the Journey Advent Box Bundle from Fun Stampers Journey. They have simplified the process and put everything you need together into one complete kit so that all you have to do is place your order and then sit down with the family and assemble it!
Gabby, co-owner of Fun Stampers Journey shows just how easy it is to bring it all together in this darling little video.
Of course, if you're like me, and you like to over indulge when it comes to crafting you can go above and beyond and add in a few more parts and pieces to take some of them over-the-top! Which is exactly what I've done here on this treat box.
For my treat box, I've used a die from the Journey Blooms Holiday Die Set along with three different shades of cardstock to build a wreath along the edge of a Journey Circle Die Cut for the front of my Advent Box. Once my wreath was built, I then glazed the tips of the leaves and sprinkled Journey Sparkle Dust and Journey Sparkle Cuts on them for some added glitz! Lastly, I cut up one of the pre-printed bread tags into a smaller sentiment to rest inside the wreath.
I love that this Bundle is very versatile in that, even if you aren't into doing an Advent Countdown, you can still use all of the bundle components for creating beautiful bags for gift giving. They are the perfect size for tucking small gifts inside, like ornaments, gift cards, some handmade treats, a pair of gloves and a scarf! I will be filling several for teachers gifts!
In fact, I'll be back soon with more ideas on how you can decorate these boxes using some of the other products offered by Fun Stampers Journey and also offer some links to other designers that have made darling projects with them too!
