This idea all started when I spotted a cute little paper suitcase at Target. Have you seen these? The possibilities are endless with all this mini cuteness. But I thought it would be perfect to create a simple, no frills advent calendar kit. And something easy to set up without much thought. This would make the perfect hostess gift for Thanksgiving or even for a teacher to have in a class room or at home.
