Paper Craft Planet is onto day 8 of the “12 Days Contest”. So: the ‘Eight Maids a Milking’, day, where we were to make something with a ‘cow’ or a ‘maid’ on it, and since I am still plugging away at my Christmas Scrapbook, I thought I’d give it a go.
I wanted to do a page that was a snap shot of everyone in our family & what was special to them. Since there are 5 of us, I made it into an ‘Advent style Calendar’. Here’s how I made the advent calendar, using my Coluzzle & circle punches:
I then used Super Sticky Tape to hold down the candy flaps, so they won’t peel off:
I’ll ask the kids & DH later what their “favourites” are & mark them in under each candy:
Here’s the finished ‘Make Ahead Scrap Pages’, ready for journaling & photos. I did something like this (snap shot of everyone’s favourites) a few years ago. Liam wasn’t around back then! So time for a new one:
I’m off to check out other fun ‘Cow Creations‘ on PCP!
