a birthday countdown is my fave

May 28, 2014

I love birthdays and I love advent calendars so it really only made sense to combine the two.


To make your own birthday countdown you’ll need:
birthday advent download
craft matchboxes
– scissors
– double sided tape

All you have to do is print, cut, and adhere the labels to the top of the matchboxes. Then fill with mini prizes such as confetti, balloons, birthday candles, and candy.

Everybody loves getting attention on their birthday (my dad excluded), give them fifteen days of it.

    Oh my daughter would LOVE this! She has been talking about her birthday for months now. And a countdown would make her swoon! I think the apple does not fall far from the tree because I love my birthday too!!! We are only 20 days a part and I think we drive our family crazy. The birthdays are coming up 🙂 Have a good day!!

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% certain. Any tips or advice would be
    greatly appreciated. Appreciate it
