Fiona - Christmas Gift

Hi All, Fiona here.   We are into week four of the Christmas Countdown, and Christmas is really not that far away. This week’s challenge is Christmas gifts and I would like to share a Christmas Countdown Calendar I have made.

Firstly I brought a Spirax notebook from a stationary store, and cut it down. I then removed the binding, and painted the edges of both covers, added a bit of ribbon to tie and hold the calendar upright, and covered them with paper from the Yuletide collection inside and outside of the cover.


I then cut my pages from a fine cardboard, painted the edges with Kaisercraft GoldPaint, and then covered with various papers.

For the numbers I cut them out with my Cuttlebug. I have then decorated each larger page with papers, collectables and other embellishments as seen below.

To complete the calendar I  put it back together with the spiral binding and there you have an awesome gift to give to that special someone.

Don't forget to load your photos of  any gifts you make here for the Christmas Countdown, to be in with a chance to win. 


Happy Crafting

  1. A very clever countdown. I love taking an item and repurposing it.
