Holiday projects

Well, it's time to reveal what I've been working on for the past days and weeks. I've been playing with the December Color Me Daisy kit, and I must say, it's fabulous! It's so jammed packed with sparkly embellishments and festive papers, and I've LOOOOVED working with it. Here are just 2 of the projects I've completed so far. I have plans to get a few more done before the week's out.

The first project is a cookie sheet advent calendar I've been dying to make for a year or so now! The kit came with so many chipboard pieces that I knew right away that I was going to make one.





Each piece is either chipboard covered in Pixie Stix Pink Paislee glitter, or a My Mind's Eye "Be Merry" die-cut covered in Making Memories glitter glaze. I backed the die-cuts with my own spare chipboard to make them sturdy enough to hold magnets. Also not in the kit is the 2 yds. of wired ribbon I bought at Ms to top it off.

The 2nd project is one that I did last year as a gift, and I loved it so much, I made another one. Thanks for the inspiration Brandi! ;) This time I attached the #s with self-adhesive velcro. I think that might make it easier for the kids to swap out as opposed the the giant binder clip I used last year.





Both projects are going to also be my entries for yesterday's December Daily since I spent the entire afternoon and evening finishing them up!

Off to photograph my December Daily and post it for ya! It's only a couple of days late, right?! hehe!
