Supplies: Tiny Treat Boxes, Whisper White cardstock, Cherry Cobbler carsdtock, Garden Green cardstock, Early Espresso cardstock, Trim the Tree Designer Paper Stack, 1-1/4" & 1-3/8" Circle Punches, 1-3/4" Scallop Circle Punch, Cherry Cobbler Linen Ribbon, Sticky Strip, Stampin' Dimensionals
 
I was inspired by the Countdown Calendar in the Holiday Catalog on page 12, but instead of stamping the numbers, I printed them. Here's how we made the calendar:
    http://juliedavison.com/downloads/Christmas_Countdown_Numbers.pdf
  1. Download and print the numbers on Whisper White cardstock.
  2. Punch the numbers using a 1-1/4" Circle Punch.
  3. Punch Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, and Early Espresso cardstock with a 1-3/8" Circle Punch. Layer the numbers on to the colored circles.
  4. Use Stampin' Dimensionals to put the numbers on to 1-3/8" Scallop Circles punched from the Trim the Tree Designer Paper Stack.
  5. Add candy or gifts to the Tiny Treat Boxes and close them up. Arrange the boxes in a pyramid shape with the TOP of the box in front.
  6. To help the boxes stay together, we used a line of Sticky Strip across each row.

The girls were so excited when I told them they could help me film the video tips! I hope you enjoy watching my little helpers! As I have mentioned before, Claire is counting down the years until she can sign up as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator herself! You can tell from the video that she's ready to do it now if she could!

All you have to do is add a comment to the post and I'll put your name in the drawing. Check back on Wednesday, December 3rd for a list of all the winners!

Melinda D: I love the idea of the decorated treat boxes for a calendar countdown. It gives you more options for little treats as compared to just the little candies my boys got as children. They are now 30 and 32!
