One of my most favorite Christmas traditions is reading a Christmas book each night to the kids as we count down to Christmas. We’ve been doing this for a few years now, and each year I love to add a couple of new Christmas books to our collection to keep it exciting.
In years past, I have individually wrapped each book and each night they get to unwrap a new book. It’s like an advent calendar on it’s own.
Last year I made this simple fabric pouch to wrap the books in. I keep all the books tucked away in a box in the basement, and each night I put a new one in this pouch with the giant bow on it and put it under the tree. They love this tradition! I love that this little pouch is less work for me and it’s earth friendly too (win-win).
For someone who’s not a sewer, this little pouch is super simple. It’s just fabric folded over and sewn together with the edges sewn nice. If you don’t have access to a sewing machine, you could also use a gift sack or you could use ribbon to wrap the fabric up.
I’m all about the earth friendly gift wrap.
This would be a fun use for vintage Christmas fabric or this napkin that I found at the thrift store.
If you are looking for a few new Christmas books to add to your collection too, here’s a bunch of fun ones. A few of these we have, and a few I’m hoping to add to our list too.
