Hi there, how has everybody been enjoying the hop so far??
Today I'm sharing a Christmas Countdown "calendar" I made from a plain wooden key box purchased from a dollar store that I then painted with acrylic paint. It had three hooks on the inside so I removed them covered that part with patterned paper and then replaced the middle hook. I stamped my images on acetate that I attached to the back of the window, creating a shaker box.
(I apologize for the crooked photos, before I could re-take them my battery died)
The holly was colored with ProMarkers and covered in Glossy Accents.
I used gems on the berries.
I cut the leaves and re positioned them and applied the "berries" on top.
On the door trim I cut and glued pattered paper to hide the edges of the acetate.
On the back I screwed in one of the extra hooks to hold the extra number tags
I liked how this turned out the only thing missing now is the chocolate..... :)
One & Only Tape
