A group of us put on a bridal shower for a friend who is getting married in 3 weeks. I made this advent calendar to match the invitations we made. There are 21 flaps, for her to open 1 each day. We handed out little papers to each guest at the shower and asked them to put their wishes, advice, etc on the paper. We then collected them and put them behind each window. She'll start at the bottom and work her way to the top. The last one she will open on her wedding day and is a little note from her husband-to-be. I'm sorry I didn't take my camera to get a picture of it with/ things on the inside. I went to town on the stamping and forgot to leave out the "s" one 1 day left, but didn't want to redo the whole thing.

This is such a way cool idea. Thanks for sharing and believe me I'm sure we all understand about forgetting and not wanting to redo. Been there done that! I will have to keep this idea in my memory bank. Ok, I'll copy it down on paper and file it away which probably won't be any better than my memory bank, but....... LOL
