I guess I can show these now. I made these advent boxes for two DF of mine. I gave them to them a couple of days ago so they could begin opening them Dec 1st. Of course in each little box is a special wrapped present. You wouldn't believe how hard it was to fill all these spots with things they didn't already have. I so enjoyed making them and the best part is they get to have a surprise every day in December! How fun is that?
