Well, it's our last day of My Creative Time's 5 Days of Christmas. I've gotten so much inspiration from Emma and the rest of the design team. I hope you have too! For my final project, I made something special for my niece Jane, who is in her first semester of college. I thought it would be fun to make a twist on the Advent Calendar, a "Countdown to Winter Break" calendar!
I found a cute basket at Joann's and attached a little sign I made to the front of it. I used my Cricut Explore with the Layered Monogram font to do the writing. Then I created some "snow," using the More Stitched Edges Dies. The cute little snowman was created with the Winter Snowman Dies.
Jane has two roommates, plus another friend across the hall that they consider their fourth roommate. So, I needed to create treat boxes big enough to hold four treats in each! I made some sour cream containers, used the Bubblegum Treat Box Die, the Treat Slider Box, and even the Scallop Stitched Envelope Die, to hold gift cards for a few of the days!
Each container is labeled with a number made with the Number Fun Dies + Add Ons, mounted on a tag made with one of the More Stitched Circle Dies and the Bunch of Stitched Doily Dies.
Hopefully this little basket helps Jane and her friends get through finals!
