Holiday Box Advent + Free Printable

by Amanda Jane Jones

Happy early Christmas! Here’s another free advent printable for you to work on over the long holiday weekend. All you need are twenty-four 3x3inch boxes (bigger is alright if you don’t mind a border), tape, scissors and the printouts! Fill with fun gifts and treats…you’re good to go! The project takes 30 minutes tops!

    I loved the bag idea from yesterday, but now I like this one too! Great ideas, thanks for sharing!

    The Design of this is so fun! This would be a great idea to do for a wall calendar every month! Just move the tops of the boxes around if you mounted the boxes on the wall! Hmm…

    I love these designs 🙂

    just wanted to share how I am actually going to use them…

    We don’t have any little ones yet, so I am going to print these, and use them on cards every day- to write a little sweet something to my husband each day before Christmas..
    and of course, I will include some candy.

    Hi Jordan, these are fabulous! I am printing them out and for some reason I am unable to print out the first page. It’s very possible this is my printer, or perhaps human error, but I have tried over and over and I was just wondering if you have any solutions? Thanks!

    Adorable! Maybe it is an idea to have a black/white version. You can print them on coloured paper. Then you can choose your own colours and only have to print in black.

    Ack these are GORGEOUS. Such a good idea! I may have to adapt this idea to tiny daily cards for my friends who are far away from me. 🙂

    I love this idea! Where is the best place to buy boxes this size in bulk?

    Jordan I miss your voice on the blog! Oh Happy Day feels more like a lovely magazine of late. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. But it’s like I want to say, ‘hey Jordan, while you’re in Paris you should start a blog!’ I miss the personal, everyday type of posts and pictures. 🙂

    Where have you been all my life?! I just discovered your blog last night (thank you Pinterest)
    and was up for hours combing through it. I love your style! You are so creative and inspiring… so thank you. I’ve been looking for advent calendar ideas for weeks and weeks and just haven’t been able to find anything that was “me”…that is, until I saw this! I’m crazy about it! Thanks again.
