Christmas Countdown With Free Printables

30 Minutes
I was blog hopping the other day playing the linky party game and I came across these cute little freebies for a Christmas count down from Finding Home Farms. Go to our blog get your freebie too! Thank you Laura!
Of course I'm a little late getting started, but when I saw these cute images I had to make my very own advent calendar.
This was a fun little project to do, the hard part was done for me with all these cute little printables.
First, go to the link I gave you on our blog and download your freebies, print them out and then cut them out. I used my Nesties and my Cuttlebug to cut mine out, but you could also use a circle punch or just cut them out by hand.
I printed mine out on white card stock that I get at Walmart I chose a cutting circle that was about 2 1/4" so that I would have a white border around each image.
Next I wanted a red border behind each image, so I chose a scalloped circle a little larger than my circle and grabbed some red textured card stock and cut out 25 scalloped circles.
I used Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive to stick the two pieces together. Just a little in the center and smooth it out toward the edges. After they are all glued and have dried well, punch a tiny hole at the top for the twine to thread through.
I used my chalkboard from the kitchen for the countdown space. I took some small jute and hot glued three strands to tie my tags to.
I attached them in a staggering fashion using red and white baker's twine cut at 12 inches each. So cute!
The best thing about this sweet little advent calendar is that you can use it year after year. I love it!
