As I shared a couple of days ago (see the post here), I contributed several projects to the 2009 Better Homes and Gardens annual Christmas book.
This one is an "countdown to Christmas" project, created from a plain white box with drawers by Karen Foster. I covered the sides and back of the box, decorated the drawers, and fashioned a "topper" to provide a focal point and additional height. Click on the photo to biggify!
I used Imaginesce products for this project, but you could also create a very cute countdown calendar using leftover bits of this and that.
I have a countdown calendar of my own that I created from a Starbucks product (see it here). The trick is to fill it with goodies that I do not like, otherwise I would eat them all on the first day! :-)
