American Girl Doll advent calendar

After looking through all the advent calendars that inspired me,
I found the perfect combination that worked for me.
I followed Ana White's tutorial for making the frame,
I changed the size to accommodate the space we have
(I know where I want to use it after the holidays!)

I added a back, covered it with some Christmas fabric,
and stringed some little ropes to hang the surprises.

Miss C. decorated 24 paper bags with tapes
while I cut out numbers out of shiny brown paper.

Finally I hanged them on the string with colorful clothespins.
Looking forward to opening the first one tomorrow....
Happy day!
