RR Christmas Countdown: Advent Calendar
Welcome to the Rubber Redneck 25 Days of Christmas!
I am super excited about this event and I hope you all will be too. Starting today December 3-25, 2021 I will be sharing Christmas related projects. If a day gets missed no worries I will still post the project, we just may have some days with double posts. ;) I love the holidays especially December and I wanted to spread the magic and cheer of the season. Some projects I will be using my silhouette and various other items. These projects are things I have made for family, friends or for us that I wanted to share. I will give a supply list + directions for each project. Below are the details how this event will work.

To Enter this Giveaway
Every December needs a advent calendar! Today's project is more about creating a fun activity for the kiddos. This year we put together a December package for our siblings families that included things to do as a family. This calendar was one of the activities for them to do. As each day progress they are to glue a pom pom over that day's number. The pom poms colors consist of yellow, red, green and brown. At day 25 they will have a filled in Christmas Tree. This was a very big hit, the kids were so excited to have their own little christmas tree. This project is great for using up things in your stash like all that chipboard that comes in the Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper Packs that you hoard cause you know you will need it some day! ;)
Silhouette + Various Vinyls (Red, Green, Yellow, Gold)
Crop - A - Dile
Christmas Countdown Calendar by Graphic House Designs
White Chipboard (this gives it more stability then card stock)
Choice of Christmas DSP for the back
Time: 30 min once you get the first one figured out
Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:
- Using the Silhouette I made a box in the Silhouette Design Studio size 11 3/4" x 11 3/4". I then brought the image into it and sized it to fill the square. Once that was done I then started cutting out my vinyl.
Quick Tip: To save on vinyl I will cut things out in batches. So for example I cut the Merry + 25 out together in a line. This saves a lot of vinyl by doing that.
- Cut a piece of White Chipboard that comes in Stampin' Up!'s Designer Series Paper Package and cut it down to 11 3/4" x 11 3/4".
- Cut a piece of Stampin' Up!s Christmas Designer Series Paper again I used some retired stuff from my stash (forgot to take the picture) cut it 11 3/4" x 11 3/4". Adhere it to the back of the White Chipboard.
- I then placed the vinyl pieces onto the Chipboard.
- At the top I used the retired Stampin' Up! Crop-A-Dile to punch holes. I then ran some retired Stampin' Up! Hemp through the holes. I made a loop so it can hang from a door handle.
I had a lot of fun creating this, especially knowing the nieces and nephews will have so much fun with it! Thanks for stopping in and I hope you enjoyed today's fun project!
