Countdown to Christmas

Victoria and I made these in our Super Saturday. She made one for Halloween but she put it away already. What do you think? Do you want any? We are having a family Craft Day on Nov 11th to make a bunch.
It takes three different paper designs to do the blocks and base unless you want them to be the same?

I found these at Scrapbookers Paradise. First set front. These are from left to right: Jolly stripe, Christmas Argyle and Holly Berry by Echo Park Paper Co.
First set reverse side. Most of these are double sided. You can do any combination of the six papers.

Second set is by Creative Imaginations featuring Iron Orchid Designs. Front side
There are two exposures so you can see the color. I'm not sure which one is truer. First is with light on and the second is with natural light.
Second set back side.

Third set front is by BoBunny and is called Noel Stripe, Noel Traditions and Noel Rejoice.
Third set backs.

This is another idea. You purchase the round mini tins from Michaels. The Favor Tin Kit includes 30 tins and 30 round printable labels. Instead the circles on this paper work perfectly. Put these on the lid or in the back and use as an Advent calendar with candies or whatever in them. They about 2" in diameter and are food safe. Sorry no picture. Mame, Allyson and Ruthanne are using a frame and putting tin it it, putting magnets on the back and using that for their Advent Calendars.
These are the papers that Victoria used on her Countdown to Halloween blocks.
The sky is the limit, you can even countdown to Valentines!
