The 25 Days of Christmas Countdown Calendar


Tuesday's "Scrapstashers Anon" class was a countdown to Christmas calendar done on a metal cookie sheet. I put the finishing touches on it today - yay, another project completed! This was so much fun to do. I didn't buy anything except the cookie sheet and magnets. I used three coordinating papers from Basic Grey's Figgy Pudding collection - two for the background and a third polka-dotted one for the individual squares. I just rummaged through all the Christmas goodies and embellishments I have been saving and found more than I could use. I think the most challenging and fun was finding different ways to add the numbers for each day. Did you notice the four spot domino for Day 4? Most of the numbers were either stickers, rubons or stamped.
