I think I'm almost finished planning our advent countdown for this year! I was in Target one day and found these adorable mini suitcases in the storage bin isle and had a Mr. Gru moment "light bulb".
Using some Christmas die-cuts from Recollections (found at Michael's) and scrapbook paper, I prettied up the tops of them. I used Washi tape to I could easily remove the papers and reclaim the mini suitcase for another use later.
The die-cut pack includes numbers 1-25, they're perfect for a countdown. I filled the inside with shredded paper in Christmas colors.
Each day, I'll change the number on the top and put a slip inside that has an activity, book suggestion, and a bible verse for the day. I used the rest of the die-cuts to make the papers cute. Some days will have a little goody that goes along with the activity of the day.
