Christmas Present Advent Calendar

 While I was home visiting this last weekend I had to take pictures of this fabulous
Christmas Present Advent Calendar
my Mother made for my brother and sister who are in college.
This advent only has 17 presents because it is counting down until they comes home for Christmas,
but, you could do it for 24 days or just count down the last 12 days.
 My Mom got the idea from in some Magazine.
She bought 17 presents for each.
They need to be smallist presents for it to work.
 Then you wrap them individually using lots of small boxes if you can.
Some of the items did not need to be boxed, but a lot did.
She found the fabulous stickers online.
 She wrapped each present in red and white stripped paper or plain red paper alternating them.
Then tided them up with Red and White Twine.
 Making a twine handle at the top to hang it on the wall.

What a fun way to count down to Christmas!

I will be linking this up to THESE fabulous link parties
