CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN ADVENT CALENDAR

Joyride: (n.) 1. A ride taken for fun and often for the thrills provided; 2. the name of the new Christmas-themed paper line from Collage Press; and 3. the "thrilling fun" time you'll have when you create your own Joyride Christmas Countdown advent calendar.

The 25 little drawers are simply screaming to have a treat, note, or other goody tucked inside for some little fingers to find and marvel at. The collage of cheerful colors, snow themes, and hints of sweet goodness flock this project. There are so many little surprises included to charm the eye -- a friendly, frosty snowman skipping a snowflake jumprope, a gumdrop adorned billboard asking, "How many more days?" and scads of sparkly embellishments twinkle brightly.

The best part about this treasure? You can easily make one for your own family with only a basic paper crafters tool kit. Paper Made Bakery has mixed up a batch of these kits for sale. All the materials you'll need to create this adorable advent/countdown calendar are included except some acrylic paint, which is optional but shown in the sample. The tools you'll need at home include adhesives (ZipDry works wells for paper; E6000 or hot glue gun for snowman and billboard; glue dots, foam squares) scissors, heavy duty hole punch (i.e., Crop-a-dile), pencil/chopstick to coil the 'jumprope'.
