I found the following idea from Simple Mom. We made some changes and created our own variation of the advent calendar.
Begin with an empty frame. We happened to have one just stashed away awaiting a good use. It already matched our decor.
Attach ribbon to the back. At first I tried a glue dot, but it wasn't heavy enough to hold the tags. I then tried tape. Fail. Lastly I pulled out the big guns and used Gorilla Glue. The ribbons are now secure.
|Our ribbons were about 2.5" apart|
I purchased paper tags measuring approximately 5.25" X 2.5" and placed a number and the activity on each tag. Next, position the tags. We used two colors; white and manila tags. It wasn't part of the original plan, but as crafts go, the craft store only had one tag pack left of each. Turns out, I like the look. We added a couple more events in between the numbered dates.We then clipped them to the ribbon using red metal binder clips found at Staples.
