Advent Calendar

Now here's something that took a little more time and effort than I had originally thought. I have plans yet to make one for myself too, hopefully. I went and bought a tart tin at Wal-Mart, selected my paper and got to work. I really wanted to use the 'Bethlehem' set from Close to My Heart because I wanted it to be a count down to Christ's birth. I learned a lot doing this advent calendar. Like NOT to use my CM, green cutter again for this project. It's just too hard on it. I will have to think of a substitute, or I am brain storming using the lids from my tomato paste. If I ever get around to doing mine, I'll be sure to let you know how it goes. I did a lot of embossing and made my own template for the top piece.

Onto more to share.....
