diy letterpress tray advent calendar

Christmas is quickly approaching and the kids are more eager to celebrate than ever. I was mulling over Advent ideas when I thought of our letterpress tray. I bought it earlier this year from a vintage shop. It sits on a dresser in our dining area and today our letterpress tray became our advent calendar!

I cut up 25 pieces of kraft paper to match the slots, leaving some excess for the paper to bend and stamped each piece then assigned a number. And on the back I attached a piece of candy and a daily advent passage with a piece of painters tape.
