I was flipping through one of my craft magazines recently and literally stopped in my tracks when I saw an advertisement for Karen Foster's new Countdown Calendar. I couldn't wait to get my hands on one. I checked out a couple LSSs but struck out. I searched online until I finally managed to find one here. It looks like they are currently out of stock but are expecting more soon.
When the package arrived, that's when the fun began! It was both a pleasure and a challenge to decide how to decorate each little box. I used a combination of various Christmas patterned papers, stamps, tons of rub-ons and as much bling as I could muster. Here's my finished project. I can't wait to fill it with little goodies for my grandson Ivan! Have any great ideas? I'd love it if you would share them with me.
This is one that needs a closer look. Just click the image to enlarge.
