interfold card & envelope kit

I love the We R Memory Keepers envelope kits. They also have a vintage & thank you kits. Basically everything is pre-punched out for you. They have both fold over cards & these folded envelopes. So first you’ll punch out your envelope.

Then fold it in like this (kind of like closing a cardboard box!).

Then I stamped a number on each one from 1 to 25.
I found this number stamp set at Hobby Lobby.

The envelope kit comes with two sheets of stickers.
So you can embellish the cards however you’d like to.

Then I stuck mine inside two Shutter Memo boards that I have hanging in our kitchen.

easiest advent calendar ever

Inside each card or envelope you can write one thing to do leading up to Christmas. Some of the things on our list include: making cookies, Secret Santa, going to the movies, caroling, making Snowman soup, acting out the Christmas story, learning a new Christmas song & making a Christmas craft. :)
