A Special Advent Calendar

We all remember the excitement and fun of opening an advent calendar each morning during the Christmas countdown to find a magical surprise behind each door.

This year, create a truly special one of a kind experience with a DIY advent calendar that can be completely customised.  You can decide the treats, activities or present to be revealed each day and create unforgettable memories for your family.

We’d love to see your creations, so why not tag is using  #averyaunz

Avery Advent Calendar Labels & Stickers

What you'll need

To make  your Advent calendar you’ll need 24 small boxes to customise with Avery labels you’ve designed yourself, a support to hang them on (we think a small wooden or cardboard Christmas tree would look fabulous), some ribbon to hang the boxes, and a sheet of Avery white matt stickers or Avery round labels that you designed. We used our 40mm gloss white round labels for this project. 

You’ll also need some small surprises for each box.

Now for the fun part! You can design your own Avery round labels to number your small boxes, and make opening one every day something special for the family.
