If there is any month that my kids love more than their own birthday month, it has to be the month of December. Even though Christmas happens on the 25th day, they start getting treats from Day 1 when they open their advent calendars.
The girls usually get to open two advent calendars- one from our advent house, and the other by LEGO Friends. This year, I'm making them a third.
Using Silhouette Studio DE (v2.8.16d) and the LD Christmas Village-Advent, I came up with the print-and-cut shown in the screenshot above. I printed the images on sticker paper and set the Cameo to cut out only the stickers on top, leaving the backing paper uncut.
To make the boxes, I used LD's 10 Things Treat Box PC (SVG included). I imported the SVG into Silhouette Studio DE and reduced the size by 50%. I could fit up to 6 boxes on a letter-sized paper.
Before putting the boxes together, I tied a loop with twine and attached it to the top of the box. This is so that I can hang each box on a wire.
To fill the boxes, I print-and-cut out LD's Advent Activities. There are 84 files in the graphic set and I picked out 25. So glad that LD came up with this set so I didn't have to stress over what to put inside the boxes!
Here is a closeup of the inserts (before they are cut out):
Once the inserts are cut out, I put one in each box and hang the box on the Silhouette Christmas Advent Calendar (Frame).
Here's the finished project:
