Holiday Advent Calendar!

If you take a look at the Holiday Mini Catalog, you will notice an Advent Calendar pictured with the 25 & Counting Stamp Set and the Peekaboo Frames Die. A few of my girls begged me to have a class on creating one of these. Well we did and this is how our projects came out:

The frame is 12" x 12" and we used a Whisper White 12" x 12" background cardstock piece to secure all of our pieces to. Here are close-ups of the numbers:

The first photo shows numbers 1-3 and 6-8. The photo above is with the peek-a-boo flaps closed and the photo below is with the flaps opened:

Numbers 4-5 & 9-10

Numbers 11-13 & 16-18:

Numbers 13-15 & 18-20:

Numbers 21-23:

and finally numbers 24-25:
