It’s no secret I’m in love with Christmas, and I can’t get enough of my FUJIFILM Instax mini 90, so when I came up with this idea for a Christmas Photo Advent Calendar I knew the collision of my two loves would be perfect!
Typically each year our advent calendar is filled with candy (see our advent calendar here). However, I’ve learned over the past few years that between Halloween and December 25 there doesn’t seem to be a candy free day, and the advent was just adding to it… typically at bedtime. This year were switching it up, I’m certain the children won’t even notice!
My idea all came into place when I found these My Mind’s Eye Market Street Advent Tags. They are a perfectly subtle color scheme, and I love the different shapes, sizes, and designs.
I used the same method to create this advent calendar as in my Instax photo gift I made this past Father’s Day, read the tutorial here. To accommodate the 25 Instax photos, your board will need to be 26 x 15″. I chose to put a small frame around my piece of plywood, but not necessary. You could even create this Christmas Photo Advent Calendar with a piece of hardboard, it comes in pre-cut sizes at The Home Depot.
Then all you’ll need to do is remember to snap a photo each day of December and clip it up; by the time Santa arrives you’ll have a whole frame of Christmas memories!
I’ve always wanted to do a December Daily album, but never seem to have the time. I’m hoping this advent calendar with Instax instant photos will make it quick and100% painless. When the holidays are over, I can simply pop them into a little Instax album (like this one), or leave the arrangement to enjoy long after the season has passed!
Instax Instant photos are perfect for capturing holiday memories; I can’t wait to fill our Christmas Photo Advent Calendar.
