ADVENT CALENDAR 2014

Our annual Advent Calendar is one of my favorite things to make every year and helps our family get into the Christmas spirit. I've been making advent calendars since the boys were little and have shared them over the years (here and here and here). This year I was inspired to revisit our kraft box advent calendar that is my most blogged about and pinned DIY project to date.

This year I designed simple black and white number labels and printed them onto white sticker paper. I always love a good kraft and black & white combo.

The boxes are mounted on a white matte board which is affixed to the wall using mounting tape.

Inside each box is a slip of paper with a family activity on it or a special treat for the boys. For the larger goodies that don't fit inside the kraft boxes, I place them in a wooden box near the advent calendar. I love how excited the boys are each morning to open up a new box.

BRIKA X SALLYJSHIM GIFT BOX COLLABORATION

I am thrilled to share with you a collaboration I have been working on with BRIKA and several of my favorite artisans. A few months ago I was approached by BRIKA to curate exclusive gift boxes inspired by my book, Pretty Packages. I had so much fun brainstorming ideas and focused on including products that were both beautiful and functional. 

The WRAP IT UP gift box is perfect for someone who loves packaging unique and thoughtful gifts. The gift box includes an exclusive Dozi screenprinted furoshiki wrap in the beautiful (and best-selling) Scales pattern. The furoshiki wrap is 19"x19" and can be used to wrap small to medium sized boxes or odd-shaped gifts and also serves as a tea towel. The gift box also includes a set of exclusive Dozi gift tags (3 different designs, 24 total) in bright and festive colors. You will also find an exclusive Shapes & Colors Textiles' screenprinted zippered pouch in cobalt blue with a bright pink zipper. The pouch is a perfect alternative to a gift box or bag, just attach a gift tag to the zipper! And last, but not least, is a copy of Pretty Packages.

The PRETTY PAPER & PACKAGES gift box is perfect for all you paper and packaging lovers! It includes an exclusive Ampersandity hand-lettered "thank you" stamp, perfect for making handmade cards, gift tags or wrapping paper. It also includes a set of exclusive Ampersandity hand-lettered gift tags in two different designs (I think a gift wrapped with kraft paper and topped with one of these gift tags is simple and pretty packaging at its finest). You will also find a set of beautiful packaging inspired cards by Good on Paper. I was so amazed at how the design was inspired by the cover of Pretty Packages. And again, last but not least, is a copy of Pretty Packages.
