A Countdown To Christmas with SRM Stickers

I can't believe how close it is getting to Christmas!!  Only 17 days left and to help my family count down the last 12 days, I created this fun hanging project.

I cut out these fab little boxes with my Cricut and Tags, Bags, Boxes, and more cartridge and tied them off with some pretty ribbons.  I then added some fab Fancy Pants Designs paper to them and then finished them off with some awesome SRM Stickers and cute little buttons, along with some fun pen stitched accents.   Did you know that SRM Stickers makes great number stickers for calendars and such??  They were a perfect to use on this fun project.

I filled each one with a little surprise for my kids like candy canes, stickers, buttons, little chocolate pieces, and fun activities (decorate a gingerbread house, paint ornaments, make Christmas cookies, etc) for each day.
I currently have it counting down 12 days, but I can always expand it to 24 days by adding more boxes to the bottom (maybe next year).  I remember as a kid that my mother had a countdown to Christmas type of project where there were treats tied to it and we got to take one off every day until Christmas.  So, tell me, do you have any fun holiday traditions that you do with your family to count down the days to Christmas??  I would love to hear about them.

I would really love it if you hopped on over to the SRM Stickers blog to leave a comment under my project post for today.  Also, don't forget that I have a fun giveaway that goes until tomorrow.  CLICK HERE for all the details.

  5. Very cute! I love the little boxes! I like the idea of keeping it to 12 days - more manageable than 24, but I guess if you wanted to have the boxes in two columns that could work for 24! TFS!

  6. Hello Amy, I love your idea about 12 days of christmas. Can you give me the size the boxes and drawer look like matchbox. I would love to make one for 2012 christmas as 24 countdown.. btw cong join peachy keen team.
