But now, we’ll be good to go for the 12 days before Christmas. I get some credit for that, right? 🙂
I showed you the start of these here
, but I just couldn’t get back to them, what with all the fluffing and glittering and greenery-puking and ten-foot trees falling…(no, the stain never came out, $100 later. Pout.)
I am IN. LOVE. with these little boxes of caa-uteness. I hope my son gets giddy at the sight of them for many years to come, just like I do right now when I look at them. Here they are all fresh and clean:
You all had GREAT ideas of going and using a die-cut machine (or whatever it’s called) to cut out the numbers. One of my girlfriends is a teacher and I almost went to her school to hold that thing hostage for an hour or so, but instead just bought regular foam and used my cardboard numbers as a template. I cut out around them with the x-acto knife and it was SO much easier than the glittery paper. Then I glittered up the numbers:
This project really wouldn’t take so long if I didn’t bling these up (there I go again) so much. I put brads, stickers, little dots, foam stickers, all kinds of stuff on there:
Sigh. I love these things. (You should be able to enlarge this one.)
Check out Carrie’s version here — love how she hung them all together! I may have to do that next year. If you watch for these little boxes to go on sale, the price for all 24 is $12. The extras only cost me about six bucks. I think it’s worth the $18 considering we’ll use these for years.
Hope you enjoy it! Back with more soon!
**Edited to add: I’m going ahead with the Christmas tree party! Here’s the blinky:
I’ll kick this off on Monday. Have fun!!
