Best Uses

    Comments about : D.I.Y. Advent Calendar:

    I thought this would be able to refilled each year in January to be suprised in Advent when opened.
    It appears that the doors can only be opened once, and will not able to close again to be re-opened each year.

    I may buy another one for a friend who has young children

    Comments about : D.I.Y. Advent Calendar:

    This is a different Advent Calendar as it has photos the individual puts in for each day. Each year you can change the pictures to include another child, a pet, a reminder of a vacation, extended family members they do not see often. Special events during the month and maybe a picture of the nativity scene in the community or church for the 25th. Many different ideas to use with this item. And - it folds flat to store for the next year!

      Perfect Grandma Gift!

      By lm

      from Annapolis, MD

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about : D.I.Y. Advent Calendar:

      Filled this with photos of my children over the past year and sent to Grandma as an early Christmas gift...Best gift I have ever given her! She calls daily to tell me how much she loves it and that days photo.

      Well made. Easy to assemble and re-ship. Be aware - it is very long - which may limit where you can hang it.

      Only con is that you tear off the cover of each photo - so while you can keep and reuse the end product as a photo collage, you can not re-create the 'surprise' of opening each window.

              Comments about : D.I.Y. Advent Calendar:

              I bought this to make an advents calendar for my foreign language class, but I am using it for a Birthday Memorabilia Card, with old timer photos for a big # birthday for a friend.
              I also think it would be an easy collapsible product photo display for a trade show traveling rep.
