I had this idea to turn an antique ironing board into my advent calander this year.
First I gave the old ironing board a coat of ebony stain.
Then I added the envelopes.
I am very happy with how it turned out.
I used my Cricut Bags, Tags & Boxes cartridge
to make the scalloped envelopes with some antique looking Christmas paper.
I also added some burlap, & stamped the numbers.
Filled them with small gift cards, jewellery, candy, & things like little post it notes & pens.
Whatever I could find that was small enough to fit into the envelopes.
