Christmas Is Coming ..... Mini Advent Calendar

Here are a couple of pictures of my latest project, itsy bitsy Advent Calendars. I know.... I know, it's too early to be thinking about Christmas, but the idea sort of snook into my head, and I just had to start making.

I used oddments of blue, silver and white glitter card that were too small to use on anything else, East of India gingham ribbon and some Dress It Up snowman buttons I got at a bargain price off E-Bay from a seller in America.
Once I put the design together they didn't take that long to make, but I hated cutting out 25 sets of numbers, next time I might try to print and cut them on my Silhouette Cutter.
I have stuck a magnet on the back so that they can be put on a fridge etc.
Looking at my box you can see that I am not the tidiest of crafters and I still have a few to finish off, but then I have plenty of time ...... ho ho ho!
