    Very cute. Do the cards slide into the top of the trees?

    Yes the trees are loose triangles (I added a little curve at the bottom of them), DH thought it might be a fun Advent Calendar, but you'd have to buy some pretty big presents to stuff the pockets!

    That is so funny! I have this out to try this year. It is in a leaflet I bought. I have a big stocking that has pockets on the outside that I usually use (made to hold cards). But, I am ready for a new one.

    Thimblebug, you did a great job on yours.

    I really like this. I don't get many Christmas cards any more.
