Gratitude Day 13: Today I am thankful for my sister and her hubby coming for a visit. We had such a wonderful time! I miss her like crazy, but we have Facebook and text messaging and so many other wonderful technologies to be able to stay in touch. Guess those are things to be thankful for as well! :)
I have been wanting to make a Christmas countdown calendar for quite sometime. Some little kraft bags from Canvas Corp. were the perfect solution! The small bags can perfectly hold a little piece of candy, movie tickets, or gift cards.
The top of each bag was folded over slightly. I used small bits of leftover lace that were on my desk on the top of each fold.
Small pieces of patterned paper were cut and the edges distressed. Then I die cut/embossed several circles, in two different sizes, from cardstock. The edges were inked and then the numbers were stamped. I also added a small stamped snowflake on each circle.
Each bag was hung from twine with a mini clothespin. Way too cute! Hope this easy and cute project inspires you to create your own countdown calendar!
What are you grateful for today? thanks for stopping by!
