I have always wanted to make an advent calendar for Christmas and with all the fun goodies SRM Stickers has to offer well it just came easy. I started with SRM Glassine Bags 3.25x4.75 Flat and used Stickers We've Got Your Number White & Black Large. I used a die for the little kraft ornament.
Next I added some of favorite Christmas sayings from We've Got Your Border ChristmasStickers By the Dozen Christmas and Stickers By the Dozen Gingerbread Man.

 I folded the Glassine Bags and added a cute clothes pin for hanging.

Of course Christmas Eve and Christmas have to be super special so I added a die cut gold star and green die cut wreath.

I thought I would finish each day off with a fun die cut bow rotating each day with a sweet deer wrapped with gold thread and a fun snowman. Hanging them with these little clothespins makes for an easy project. Making this the perfect way to countdown my favorite time of year.

I used an old barn wood frame topped off with a fun Christmas sign.

Now who's excited for Christmas?  It's time to start counting down!
Over this Thanksgiving weekend it might be fun to create a countdown Advent calendar with your family.  What a great project that would be!
