The heart of this romantic advent calendar for lovers consists of 24 personal messages. Sweetened with fine chocolates and completely sustainable in a preserving jar. In this quick guide, you can download the templates for the Advent calendar and make it yourself.
I love you because…? The “because” is of burning interest to anyone in a young relationship. And even if you’re no longer newly in love and know the reasons (do you ever really?!?), it’s all the more important to hear them every now and then to keep the flame burning!
What reasons can you think of why you fell in love with your sweetheart? What qualities and quirks do you love the most? In my guide you’ll find 24 personal reasons and if you need more inspiration, here are more 365 reasons why I love you!
The advent calendar looks especially beautiful if you design it in the colours red, gold and black like I did. After all, it should also look good ;-).
I made the fold-out cards with the numbers myself and provide them free of charge on the material list. All the other materials I used to decorate the cards are listed there.
Chocolate creates feelings of happiness and to sweeten the written declarations of love even more, 24 fine chocolates are hidden in this Advent calendar in addition to personal declarations of love. Individually wrapped chocolates in shiny cellophane are particularly beautiful: because they are delicious and colourful, I have filled the Advent calendar with golden Ferrero Rocher and red and black Lindor balls.
Do you have the time and inclination to make your advent calendar for lovers more elaborate? You can also package it in a sophisticated way as origami Advent calendar or snowflake Advent calendar. Among all my craft projects, I am particularly proud of these two reusable advent calendars. 🙂
The advent calendar consists of 24 cards, each with “24 reasons why I love you” hidden inside and 24 chocolates in a preserving jar. As always, you can find all the craft materials I used on the material list.There I have also provided you with the template for the cards (in German) as a download.
Are you looking for more funny reasons or personal compliments or do you want to go the extra mile in terms of romance? Find more 365 reasons why I love you right here.
You can draw a frame around the reason with a finelinerPrint out the template (currently only in German available) on 120mg paper and cut out the cards or design it by yourself. The Advent calendar looks especially nice if you print half of the cards on red paper and the other half on white paper.
Fold each card in half and label it with your 24 reasons. Decorate each card with gold relief stickers. I used Christmas stickers from Paper Poetry (see supplies list).
Seal each card with a red or a white mini clothes peg and fill them alternately with 8 black Lindor balls, 8 red Lindor balls and 8 gold Ferrero Rocher balls in a 750ml canning jar.
Place the lid of the jar on a piece of golden patterned wrapping paper and outline the jar. Leave 2-3 cm overhang and cut out the circle with pinking shears. Glue it to the lid and the rim of the lid with the hot glue gun.
Cut out one of the two letters “24 reasons why I love you” from the template all the way around. Place a red fabric ribbon around the belly of the jar and glue it in place so that the ends overlap in a cross. Stick the words “24 reasons why I love you” in the centre. Now glue the wooden stars on top.
Now you have a beautiful and very personal advent calendar for lovers that is guaranteed to bring you a kiss or two. 🙂
