It took me about a week to make this edible advent calendar. I made it for my in-laws. It's a big calendar, measuring 20 inches wide and 30 inches tall. I used my biggest square cookie cutter for all the cookies, so the numbers wouldn't be tiny. I also submitted each cookie to Julia Usher's Christmas Countdown Challenge.
I had the poster on my dining table, and I couldn't get a good photo of it. I ended up standing on my dining table to take this picture, I was surprise my table didn't break. =]
I will be putting each cookie in individual cello bags and gluing the bags to the poster board. This way, the cookies are still edible.
Here are the 25 cookies, up close and personal.
To make the calendar, I used a white foam poster board. Glued on some decorative scrapbooking paper, and letters. It was pretty simple, so everyone can make one.
I have a huge dining table, and this cookie advent calendar project took up most of it. My husband wasn't happy. =] He is really happy it is done.
I packaged the cookies individually in their own bags, taped in to the poster. Now the calendar is hanging in my home. Ready to be eaten.
Google added some snow and twinkle animation to these two pictures for me. It's awesome!
