Countdown to Christmas, a paper craft

Can you believe that it's ONE day until December? I have a fun little craft for you today. I love all those Advent calendars out there. Except that they all give toys and candy each day until Christmas. And my husband and I like to focus on the real Christmas meaning.

I thought and thought and finally came up with what I wanted to do. Each little envelope contains a Bible verse leading up to Christmas. I also added a teeny bit of Christmas confetti to each envelope. The first 12 envelopes have Old Testament verses, prophesying the Messiah. The second 12 envelopes have New Testament verses about the birth and life of Jesus Christ.

Would you like to make this for your family? I have complete instructions including all the supplies you need and printable sheets for the Bible verses and numbers on the fronts of the envelopes on my website! It's under the Free Patterns section. While you're there, take a look around. You might see something to make for a Christmas gift for someone.

Merry Christmas!
