My project for today is a rather unique take on an Advent Calender.
The Folded Stars were created with 6X6 Squares of Recollection's card stock in 5 colors. the embellishing was done with gold and silver metallic paper and red green and white Recollection "Lumiere" paper.the corner triangles were embossed with sizzix Frost folder.Each star when opened reveals either a word or a sentiment relating to Christmas.These were taken from "Mixed Holiday Sentiment" by My Creative Time, "Christmas Wishes" by Pink by Design."Winter Wishes" by K.Andrews and "Christmas Words" by Hot off the Press. The numbers were printed om my computer and cut with the stitched circle die from My Creative Time 's "Build a Banner Kit". The snowflakes were punched with a Martha Stewart punch.
