Magnolia Christmas Avent Calendar Day 6: Counting down to Christmas

Welcome to Magnolia Christmas Avent Calendar Day 6! I am so excited to create something specialon this special day.
       I have created 25 tags for counting down to christmas. But they are not actually a tag, it can made from a wax paper bag, a  doily, a cork, a piece of corrugated paper, etc.....just image how and where I found all these great pieces:-))         
                                                      

This counting down to christmas decoration has two sides, which I hang them all on a wooden board. They can be remove because I hang them with mini clothes pins, which was sent to me by my talented friend Yulis Kartika from Indonesia, thank you very much Yulis.

 
One side of the decoration, from Day 1 to Day 12. On the top I have Day 24, as to make it a special day, and there has a beautiful white bird beside the tag.


Here is another side of decoration.From Day 13 to Day 22. I placed the Day 25 tag on the top, to make it as a special day.

Close up photo. There has two small pins on the top of the wooden board, I tied with pink ribbon so that i can use it as hanger.I also decorated with some small red and pink roses, all these supplies was sent by Magnolia DT Lillemor, thank you very much sweetie.

Another close up photo. You can notice I tied the silver thread along the wooden board so that I have hang the tag on it using mini clothes pins.


Do you think it's a little messy? but I have so much fun to create something messy-christmassy...haha.....


I used almost anything I can find in my house to create. I hand written "Christmas Countdown 2011" on a stamped image from Magnolia rubberstamp.


I have so much to write about all the little pieces. How and what I used. But to make it short, I can tell you, I use a lot and a lot and a lot of Magnolia product, not just rubberstamps, I used doohickey dies, patterned papers, flowers, etc, mostly Magnolia :-))

Day 25- Magnolia rubberstamp-sweet christmas collection,doohickey die cut
Day 24- Magnolia rubberstamp-Sweet christmas collection colored with new winter distress inks, Magnolia patterned paper
Day 23-Magnolia patterned paper cut into small strips and glued them on a small cut, topped with Magnolia stamped image.
Day 21-Magnolia patterned paper
Day 20- Magnolia doohickey die and rubberstamp-Love
Day 19-Magnolia rubberstamp christmas 2010
Day 18-Magnolia doohickey die
Day 16-Magnolia mini rubberstamp

Day 15- I used Magnolia patterned paper, I don't need any dies, just cut two strip of patterned paper about 2 inches then fold it "up and down" then joint them together , you will get a rossette flower.
Day 14- Magnolia doohickey doily die
Day 13- I stamped Magnolia rubberstamp with brown Stazon ink on a plastic tag. No need to color.
Day 12- A mini spool. I stamped Magnolia sentiment "Merry Christmas" inside the patterned paper.
Day 11- Magnolia patterned paper and rubberstamp-merry christmas.
Day 10-Magnolia rubberstamp-Love
Day 9-Magnolia doohickey dies( tag and snowflakes)
Day 8-Magnolia doohickey die


Day 4- Magnolia rubberstamp-Merry christmas
Day 1-Magnolia rubberstamp-christmas 2010.

I hope that you enjoy looking at my creation and get inspired;-)) If you leave a comment here, then you will have chance to win fabulous and yummy prize directly from Magnolia rubberstamps Sweden. Everyone can join, no any extra work, just leave your comment:-))
