Countdown Boxes

Here's a fun and easy project for the holidays! Let the kids help you make countdown blocks or boxes, covered with three of your favorite papers, and they can watch every day to see "How many more days????"

Step 1: Construct the boxes or use blocks, and adhere three co-ordinating papers on opposite sides.

Step 2: Ink the edges

Step 3: Add vinyl numbers 0-5 on block one and 0,1,2,6,7,8 on block two.

Step 4: Paint the base.

That's it! Wouldn't this be fun for Halloween, Birthday, Disney Cruise, school starting, new baby, wedding, or any other special event?

I'm off to create some fun video's for you...and a few surprises for my swarm sisters!

Happy Crafting ~
