Easy Print and Fill Advent Calendar Pouches

It’s ‘almost’ that time of year! One of my favourite gifts in the run up to Christmas is advent calendars. I make loads of them, so am always looking for easy ideas that I can make cheaply and easily.  Last year, I made a bunch of these Advent calendar Pouches.  I have been working on my graphic design skills, so it was a great chance to practice some techniques. Each day uses a little monochrome seasonal message, with the date in red, so it wont use up gallons of expensive printer ink!

Using the free printable at the foot of the post, the whole calendar can be printed and assembled in under 30 minutes.  Display in a jar or Christmas box, string on a line, or even hang them from a tree.  Whatever you choose, I hope you enjoy making them, and have a very merry Christmas.
