Put a sticker inside each envelope under the flap, and glue all 24 onto poster board.  I was able to fit all the envelopes by making three columns and eight rows. Put a drop of hot glue on each corner

Number each envelope and if you want, create a special design on each one.  I combined Christmas designs with drawings special to the person I made this for, like Mickey, Batman, and inside jokes.

Put a small gift, candy or card with a special message in each envelope, and prepare for a huge smile when your loved one sees their own custom advent calendar! Merry Christmas!
