SEATTLE - eTradeWire -- Christmas villages and Advent calendars are two of the most popular traditions of the Holiday season; enjoyable traditions that involve adults and little ones alike. This wonderful paper kit combines them both in a perfect mix of whimsy and simplicity.

It's a kit that is designed for you to make paper houses using brown paper bags, fill them with treats and gifts for your family, then set them up like a village. The paper houses are numbered from 1 to 25 like an Advent calendar, to open from December 1st to Christmas day. It's so easy and fun to make, you will want a set for each member of your family, not only the kids!

The gorgeous paper houses are all different and hand-drawn by designer and illustrator Louma El-Khoury, of Seattle, WA. Whimsical yet simple, and refined with a limited color palette, the final winter village looks truly magical. The kit contains 25 paper house fronts that you would glue to 25 brown paper bags, also provided. Assemble the bags in 10 minutes, then fill them with your family members' favorite treats and little gifts, and set up your village.

The houses come in a few different sizes which gives the village a natural dimension. Add a few props like a snow-white felt blanket, little faux trees, and mini LED lights that run between the houses, and watch it glimmer. "My kids, and even my husband would wake up through the month of December, thrilled to open their "house of the day," El-Khoury adds, referring to the village Advent calendar of 2020. "They will never forget it. And how wonderful is that? After all, this time of year is all about traditions and moments that we want to make memorable."

Want to know what else is genius? Come December 25, the village will have cleaned itself (in the recycling bin, please), and you will not have a stack of houses to put away in storage. Now this is the level of efficiency I need, especially after Christmas.
