Just a quick post to share my 2nd craft for the Holiday season...
Tammy (the other Scrappy Mom) bought a kit to made a standing countdown calender that used bead board, a metal sheet and vinyl. I LOVED it - but they were all sold out so I decided to try to make it myself. Since I already had a table-top one that my kids keep knocking over (and over, and over) I decided to make one that goes on the fridge.
I got a 12 x 12 sheet of metal flashing at Home Depot - covered the edge with strips of scrapbook paper to help "soften" them a bit. I designed the vinyl in MTC in three layers, one for each color. First I laid down the black layer with the title and icons. Next came the red layer and finally the white layer with the numbers which sets on top of the icons.
I put self-adhesive magnets on the back and attached a super-strong disc magnet to the Santa face, which is a small Christmas tree ornament. Ta-Da ... a Christmas countdown calender is born! :)
Hope you enjoyed my little project today! I have one more to share... possibly even today since tomorrow is Christmas Eve and will be busy for most of us. :)
