Little Claire Friday Blog Project - Advent Gift Calendar

It's my turn to share a project on the Little Claire Blog this morning and I've made a little Advent Gift Calendar using money envelopes.  There's a step by step photo tutorial on the Little Claire Blog here if you'd like to take a look.

The idea is that you can little crafty gifts in the envelopes and then a bigger gift in the final envelope.  Here's a view of the calendar from the end showing some Little Claire Dinkies inside the envelope:

and this is the final page with a sentiment from the Little Claire 'Snowmen' stamp set:
