This is so cute! I find that I get so many lovely Christmas cards each year and I hate throwing them in the trash. This would be a fun way to save my favourite cards and put them to good use. I'm also always looking for good recycling-lesson activities to use with my students and I think that they would have lots of fun making this one. I could even have them put kind notes for each other along with a treat in each pocket. Nice tutorial.

This is okay. Just like the other calendars. But for me creativity will be limited since card don't have pockets. So there would be no other surprises. Just the letter itself. But overall, this craft would be fun for younger kids.
