How To Make An Advent Calendar Out Of An Old Dictionary

"I found a dictionary on my bookshelf the other day that had literally been gathering dust. I can not remember the last time it had been used, who needs a dictionary when you have google on your phone? I decided to use this dictionary to make a fun advent calendar for Christmas. I printed pretty vintage images on dictionary pages with the words relating to that image. I then folded these into envelopes. A number was stenciled on the front of each one and then hung up for and advent calendar."
