Advent Calendars

Here are some Advent Calendars I made from some 5"x 5" 2007 calendar magnets from where my Son works. They were going to toss them and I asked if I could have them. :-)

They are a little bigger than the coaster advent calendars that a lot of gals are making. As I continue to make them, I keep coming up with different ideas on how to secure the numbers. I think I like the Velcro the best. And, I keep trying to figure out a different way to make the numbers.....I used some chipboard circles the last few I made. They are a lot easier than punching out tags.

I have tons more ready to embellish.....but think I am running out of time to give them by December 1st.
The papers used were Vintage Holiday from TAC which has been discontinued, Basic Grey Figgy Pudding, Tinker Bell background paper, and I also used my Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder on cardstock. I even helped my Sister make a double hanging magnet with a Mickey Mouse theme....but we forgot to get a photo of that one....dang!
I was asked to make a Wedding one....countdown to a wedding....that should be fun!!!
Hope all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!! We had friends and family over and had a great time just visiting after dinner, recalling things from our childhood days and sharing funny stories and of course, telling jokes!
Today, we are headed to see our Granddaughters and take them shopping....WHAT WAS I THINKING.......completely forgot about today being Black Friday! Oh well, it will be worth it to see the girls!!
Now to get busy creating some Christmas cards! :-)
Have a great weekend!!!!
