Mailbox Christmas Countdown be a kid at Christmas time! Hi Doodlebugs! It's Kathy Martin here today to share an Advent calendar I created with a little metal mailbox tin and Doodlebug Design's Home for the Holidays collection. 

You can find these mailboxes at Target in the dollar spot department throughout the year. Whenever I see them I pick up several since they make adorable projects!

I opted for this colorful striped paper to cover my reminds me of candy canes! Then I embellished it with a pretty green bow, tag, Doodle Twine, accent stickers and tiny jingle bells.

Doodlebug Jewels add eye catching sparkle as tree toppers!

From the this & that sticker sheet I found the this adorable tag. I love the vintage style font!

Tucked inside the box are 24 pieces of paper with holiday activities written on them, money or treat coupons.

Here's the back of the box...another adorable holiday house.

I can't wait until December 1st! It'll be great fun to see how excited my son is to open one of these paper rolls each morning!

Hope you enjoyed my share and the season!


  1. This is super adorable! Very fun!!

  2. How fun! You could put your activity/treat in each day. That way larger items (like a new movie for movie night) would fit, too.

  3. What a cute idea and I know my kids would love it. Will have to look for those at Target next time I'm there! Great idea!

  4. What a cute idea! I might have to make one of those with my leftover pieces :)
