Totally love the papers you used!
<br>
I would love to do one of these for next year <img border='0' src='/graphics/mbicons/smilies_v2/smile.gif'>

The Advent Calendar itself was already made. I got it at Starbucks on clearance after last Christmas. All I did was decorate the fronts of the boxes.
<br>

<br>
I cut out squares of coordinating paper slightly larger than the front of each box. Then I used temp adhesive to stick them to the fronts and arrange them in the order I wanted. (I did this because I couldn't move the boxes around afterwards because it has a picture on the backside of the boxes.) Then I put a coat of Aileen's Tacky Glue on the front of each box (one at a time) and stuck the paper down. I sanded the edges down so they would look smooth and inked them to get rid of any white I may have caused while sanding.
<br>

<br>
Then I just went through all my letter stickers and mixed and matched black numbers.
<br>

<br>
If you want more ideas I saw several in the gallery that people made last year! Some were more ellaborate than mine too.

Here's what the original Starbucks looked like when I bought it.

VERY cute! Love the colors you used. Are they little boxes? If so, can you please share how you made them?

Great job! TFS!

Wow, that's awesome! How'd you do it? I'd like to try this for gifts next year.

I made this for my mom to do this year with my 3 nieces. I kept it simple on purpose and my mom chose the color scheme. TFL!!
