Black & White Christmas (advent) calendar!

So it's official. December is knocking at our doors! We could go over and over again about how fast this year has passed, but probably, by the time we finished talking about it, it would be Christmas already... So let's skip this bit and move on to what matters.

In Brazil we are not used to advent calendars. I had no idea of this tradition of giving kids a treat everyday of the month until Christmas day. But now I know about it, I think it sounds really fun. I've seen quite a few recently on my searches through the web, but this one I chose to share here is definitely the most original one I came across. Not to mention that you will only need card-stock and a printer (well, also some scissors & glue, but you're used to it...).

The calendar above is signed by Michaela, from Hey Look, a wonderful Finnish website full of DIY tips! She also made the pattern for these 24 lovely little boxes available as a freebie, just follow the link to her original post (in both English & Finnish) to download it! Note: A step-by-step tutorial showing how to assemble the boxes is also available.
