December Calendar inspired from the Matryoshka Advent Calendar

December: Calendar, Advent & bucket list

Here we are! The last month of the year is drawing close. I can’t believe we will soon enter the holiday season. Here you will be able to download the last printable month calendar. It was inspired once more, by one of my last Advent Calendar : The Russian nesting dolls Advent Calendar.

Matryoshka Advent Calendar for December

When I work for papier Bonbon, I often remember the child that I was to recall what filled me wonder then. I already talked about it, My uncle offered me Russian nesting dolls when I was a little girl. These nesting or classical home decorations always fascinated me. Their garments ans style. I imagined sumptuous balls, adventure tales & winters glittering with snow.

That’s why I wanted to use this theme to create a new Advent calendar to build a fabulous winter ball where everything would be sumptuously decorated. Here are those 24 gift boxes in the shape of matryoshaks & their dance partners that will help you make small surprise all along December to your loved ones. I added Christmas tree and a coach to complete the scenery of this winter ball.
