I used the evergreen punches to help make this cute Christmas advent box.
I’ve always wanted to do this.  We can’t wait to start a new tradition this year.

It was super easy to do.  Here’s how I made it.

How to make a Christmas advent box:
1. I cut out the evergreen punches with my Epic Six and Genius Platform. I used several shades of green card stock to do this.
2. Then I get out my box. I found this one at Hobby Lobby.  I used my coupon. :)
3. I used my Silhouette to cut papers that were the exact size of the front of each drawer.
I glue one of these on each of the drawers.
4. I embellished a few of the drawers with some washi tape.
5. Then I put a tree on each drawer.
6. Then I applied vinyl numbers on top of that. Super cute & easy!

When it gets closer to Christmas I’ll cut up strips of paper to put in each box & write something for us to do on each one.  Then we’ll have something fun to do each day leading up to Christmas day.
