Christmas Daily Activity Box

I am so excited about this project... it's a countdown to Christmas in a non traditional way.  I don't have little ones anymore... but I do like to have an activity to think about each day.  So here is my version.  It was fun to put together and 1 green, 1 red and 3 patterned papers and lots of scraps to craft this box.  (Thanks to Allie Weston CTMH, who inspired this project)

Products used are:
Z1614 Memory game 9.95
