Christmas Wishes 2018

It’s that time again for the box of Christmas Wishes!  I had to get these ready now so the recipients can take them home at Thanksgiving (and save me from mailing them later).

I downloaded these tree box templates from PaperBuiltShop.  They are so cute and can hold larger items.  The three tree boxes contain Christmas tree-shaped candy canes similar to these.

Instead of buying paper for the packets, I used some old music paper which I ran through the printer to add some holiday graphics. 

The packets contain a small ornament to hang on a small 2-foot tree.  One ornament per child each day beginning December 1st so by Christmas Eve the tree will be decorated.  This year it’s 69 ornaments as the candy cane tree won’t hang on the tree.  (BTW, my daughter saves most of the ornaments each year and gives them back to me every other year so I don’t have to buy all new ones each year.  And the grandchildren haven’t complained yet!)

Ready to go.

Do you have an Advent tradition?
