On the 5th Day of Christmas


I just love Target. I mean LOVE!!! I live for those sale endcaps, as my husband can attest to! Right after Halloween, I spotted Halloween countdown calendar boxes for 75% off! I had to buy four of them! ;) They were filled with a gummy in each box, but I replaced the gummies with Hershey Kisses (Cherry Cordial and Hot Cocoa flavors) and little Christmas sayings and quotes. As you can see, I used the Basic Grey Wassail papers and some embellishments to decorate the calendar! Silly me, though...I forgot to take pictures of the sides. I covered the sides and back using the Mantle paper, and it looks very nice! :) Take my word for it! I made this for my dad...it should get to him tomorrow. I hope he likes it!
This picture shows the drawers a little closer up:

And here is the little chocolate and note inside:
