Family Gifts: Christmas Countdown Day 1

Back with the second half of this mornings post. I had to split it up into 2 posts today since it's a lot to share!

Day 1 Gift:

Block Calendars & Kid's Advent Countdown Calendar. The Block Calendars were handmade by us. I got this idea off of pinterest and I think the original maker is Melissa Stout to see her version visit her blog. Last year I shared some of the Stampin' Up! ones I created. I have so much craft stuff that my goal has been to try to use up all my none SU stuff and scraps! This gift worked perfect for that goal!

Calendar Block 1

This was made using the product from the 2016 Holiday Catalog and you can find the details on this blog post HERE. You can still purchase the Holly Berry Builder Punch, Santa's Sleigh, Santa's Sleigh Thinlits, and Large Numbers Framelits.

Calendar Block 2

This used some of my misc DSP Christmas Paper I had left over. I really liked the reindeer cut out in the Silver Glimmer Paper.

This one was for the kido's. I stumbled across this Santa on-line on pinterest and as soon as I saw it I wanted to do this.

If you would like to make your own just click on the picture below and save to your computer and print it off.

I of course really wanted my projects to include my biggest passion which is of course my stamping :) so I created this adorable bags to slip the Santa's into.

To package the Santa Countdown all up I used tissue paper to create a bag and decorated.

We made cards to put in each gift too.
