MCT 5 Days of Christmas ~ counting the days!

GOOD MORNING my friends! Today is Day 2 of My Creative Time 5 Days of Christmas. This week my Design Team Sisters at My Creative Time are working on a treat this week for our “5 Day s of Christmas”. You will see tons of AMAZING ideas from tags, treats, cards, gift card holders, etc.... to get your holidays off to a “crafty” good start! We all hope you enjoy everything you will see this week!   

Today we are sharing "treat holders"!  My treat holder is actually an Advent Calendar.  (sorry about my pictures today. I had a hard time photographing the glitter paper).

This may seem time consuming, however it really isn't.  Just pick out 4 coordinating 12x12 papers (thicker cardstock works best).  Oh a little bit of glitter paper too!  Then die cut and glue away...

Inside the matchbook a Ghiradelli Chocolate Squares is attached with a glue dot.

Your advent calendar/banner is a great idea - a little surprise treat/gift every day leading up to Christmas and also holiday decorations for home! It looks great and I'm sure it looks much better in person (I know it's difficult to photograph and get the right effect.)

You could probably do mass-production
on these. Once you get the basic idea
they should be easier to finish.
Love the banner. Makes a wonderful
advent calendar.
thanks for sharing.

Debbie said...
