This year all the Christmas cardstock pads at Michael's have a couple of sheets with 25 numbered 2.5" squares. I bought a few different pads (buy 1 get 2 free!) and decided one design would make a good countdown for my mom!



I used my Bind-it-all to assemble it. The "cover" is from a sheet of tags in the same pad. All the printed papers are from the same pad.











I mounted all the numbered squares to a slightly larger red or green cardstock square and then mounted them to one of three printed cardstock rectangles. Then I embellished most of the numbered squares with bling and such from my stash. I got lazy and didn't take pictures of them all.  Roll Eyes



















I've been making a lot of paper projects lately using my Cricut, so it was fun to get back to a hand cut project. I was lucky enough to be partnered with rackycoo a few years ago in a swap and received a wonderful Halloween countdown from her magical hands. I use it every year! It was also made using a Bind-it-all and that inspired me to try that method on this one!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

What a great way to use those particular pages! I love the vintage vibe it has, too.  The use of the ribbon as the stand is a clever idea, and I like how you kicked it up a notch with the embellishments.

Thanks! I couldn't help myself with the embellishments!
