Good morning! I have a fun project to share with you today. Every year my kids love to count down the days until Christmas. We have tried many ways we have a fun wooden Mrs. Clause that spells out a special message as you turn over the numbers, we read a story each day leading up to Christmas and, of course, we have to have the chocolate calendars from the grocery store. This year we wanted to try making a calendar on our own, so here is what we came up with...
I used the envelope punch board to make 24 small pockets using paper from The Paper Studio. For the decoration on front, I used a 1 3/8 punch and a scallop circle punch from Stampin Up. In some of the smaller circles I used an alphabet die set from Lawn Fawn to cut out the words Merry Christmas. The other circles are decorated with stickers I got a Michael's last year. For the clothespins, I used some ATC cards I bought at Hobby Lobby last year and cut out the individual numbers to glue on. I added some gems from my stash and hung it from some twine I got from the dollar store. Then we added some snack size Hershey bars for a treat.
I found the idea for the pockets on Pinterest.
