When I saw this cute Valentine’s Advent Calendar on Smashed Peas and Carrots, I just knew I had to do something similar. We had fun with our Christmas Advent box, but it was a lot of work. For this I decided to do something much simpler, and just focus on chocolate! I don’t think anyone is going to complain about that. I certainly won’t.
I wrapped four pieces of chocolate in each little package, using this technique from Martha Stewart, and then I tied them with some embroidery thread and made the number circles with paper scraps. Every day we get to open a package and enjoy a little treat! I may have already enjoyed quite a few treats… Between Shaun and I, I had to run to the store to buy one more bag of chocolate so I could finish the packages!
The plan is to hang them from some twine with clothes pins, but we’ll see if I ever actually get around to that! I’m just amazed that I actually finished something on time.
