It’s a snap to make a cute Advent Christmas calendar with the Candy Box Punch Board.  Follow these easy steps:

1-      Make the smallest box possible using your favorite Christmas paper.  I’m using the really fun North Pole collection.
2-      Tie one end of the box closed using ribbon or twine.
3-      Cut small strips of patterned paper and card stock to decorate small clothespins.  You will use these to hold the top of the box closed for easy access to treats.
4-      Decorate the outside of the candy boxes as desired.  You can number them with stickers or stamps.
5-      Fill boxes with treats, or slips of paper with Christmas activity ideas.
6-      Attach boxes to ribbon or twine with the decorated clothes pins.
7-      Hang and enjoy!
