I didn't have time to post Christmas projects this year, but now is the time to start gifts for Christmas 2014! I intended to make a number of these, but completed only one. I made this as the December Gift Swap for the Stampin' Divas.
I bought the frames at IKEA, my favorite place to shop for household items of all kinds. This is based on a tutorial that was part of my December 2013 subscription at Craft Project Central. I had to improvise because the binder ring method the designer used was not at all feasible for the frame I chose. All in all this was a fun but time consuming project as I had to improvise a number of things for one reason or another.
I used the 25 and Counting My Digital Studio Download to print each of the CountDown Days and then featured it on a 2-1/2 x 3-1/2" card. I added ribbon to the cards to hang them from the "knob" on the Christmas CountDown frame.
I made a little box to hold the cards when they are not in use.
I will post the Count Down cards during the next couple days.
