I know it’s a little early, but once December rolls around, I’m busy every weekend with my entertaining biz. If I’m going to get anything done, I have to do it now.
I made this with supplies that I had on hand and a downloaded pillow box file from Birds Cards. If you haven’t been to her site, you will be happy you do if you are interested in paper crafting. Oh, and all of her files are free!
I cut the numbers out of the middle of the snowflakes, added some brown kraft paper that I cut in strips, attached some burlap to a piece of wood from the garage, and pounded in some nails.
The hardest part was lining up the nails. I have zero math skills so I use a piece of tape to mark my holes, then move it down to the next row for a perfect match. Lot’s of trial and error on where to place each nail, but once I got it, I didn’t have to measure for the next rows.
My kids are too old for this, so it’s going to my great nieces that are 5 and 3. I can’t wait to fill each box with little treasures.
