Christmas Countdown Advent Calendar
I have created two versions this countdown calendar...they both have their own hand-made "whiteboard" for recording how many days are left till Christmas...
For Version 1
I used an A4 Board with rounded edges.
A Large Round Clip (for the top) - this is here simply to look good. What it seems to be "holding" is stuck down with double sided tape.
Printer and white card, for the words "Days until Christmas". I used the font "broadcast", cut it to size and rounded the corners with a corner punch.
Dark Brown Backing Card - for the white laminated card and the wording.
Stampin' up Classic Stamp Pad "Chocolate Chip" - I inked the edges of the christmas paper, "whiteboard" and "days until christmas" card.
A laminator - I cut a piece of white card to the size I wanted, rounded the corners, inked the edges and then laminated it. Then I trimmed the plastic around it with a paper trimmer. If you don't have a laminator, you could try covering your piece of card with clear contact, or what is known as "cold laminate".
Ribbons from my stash.
Some Christmas flowers
White buttons and thread.
Red Gemstone brads (for the dots on the i's)
A Corner rounder - to round the corners of the paper, and card.
Double sided tape - to tape everything down.
Small wooden stand / easel
You can use a whiteboard pen or liquid chalk pen (these come in lots of colours) to write on the "whiteboard".
