Advent Calendar

Here’s my advent calendar for this year – only it uses last year’s DSP!  Sorry about that – but I am on a mission to use up the paper around this craft room!  This is done on a piece of canvas on a wooden frame that I found in the art section at Michaels. 

To adhere the Real Red (4 x 20) and the Dashing DSP (6 x 6 squares) I used Mod Podge.  The card stock of Old Olive and Real Red (4 x 4 squares) were adhered with Sticky Strip.  I decorated the tins with more DSP and adhered them with velcro dots and finished the edges of the frame with Real Red 5/8 inch grosgrain ribbon.

The title is computer generated and the Santa’s are made with the Big Shot scallop die and a hand cut hat.  The pom poms are from the pennant die. 

We have three birthday’s in December so I marked those with the star stamp from Spotlight on the Holidays.

The numbers are die cut from the Go Go Boots alphabet and the last tin is decorated with another stamp from Spotlight on the Holidays and Real Red brads and the scallop square punch.  Enjoy!  Hugs, Fran
