Look how fun this Santa Countdown turned out! My son's 1st grade class is super excited to start using it.
It only has 14 links because that is how many school days they have come Monday! How can that be!!!!!!
How did I make it you say? Well, with my Kiwi Lane templates of course! :)
Here is my general idea that I started with. -note I didn't end up using the star
Kiwi Lane Templates
Rings -Background and cap "ball"
Tiny Wacky -beard
Pattern and solid paper, ink, daubers, scissors, pencil, cotton balls, adhesive, foam tape
I made this project with I Believe from My Minds Eye paper and the solid is Stampin Up.
In this picture you can also see how I did the beard. First lay your ring on the paper about where you want the final placement. Then use the "cloud" from Tiny Wacky to trace it out.
As you are layering it together keep in mind that the 3rd smaller ring is both the "mouth" and "nose" so play with it until you like it. I chose to add some cotton balls for fun, but that is totally up to you.
Here is how I attached the chain. And you are DONE!
