Advent Candy Wrappers

I told you a while back that I would post some info on assembling Advent Candy Wrappers, so here it comes!


CLICK HERE to download a PDF Tutorial.

In the tutorial, you will find reference to a YouTube video on folding these little treasures. I just want to thank Kirsteen for taking the time to make a video of the process. She uses almost exactly the same method I use, so there was no need for me to reinvent the wheel...plus, I LOVE listening to her accent and I'm sure you will, too ;-)

String 24 of these together in a garland and hang on a tree, or down a banister. Or, put magnets on the back and display them on a magnetic surface in the shape of a tree or wreath. Or, attach them to another project, like the frame of a Christmas Countdown.  Put treats in them, and/or little gifts or scripture verses for each day.

They are reusable, and they store flat, so once you've made them, they'll be around for a while. Be Warned: when your kids see these they might force you to make a separate set for each of them!!! Seriously, my son is 17 and not at all into my paper crafting, but he thinks these are SO cool.

Here is another shot of the Advent Candy Wrappers, without numbers, and blinged up a bit as favors.
