For this challenge we were to use a past holiday item to inspire a scrapbook page or décor item. I decided to use this year’s advent calendar to inspire a Valentine Kiss Calendar. This calendar works in the same way as a Christmas advent calendar, but it counts down to Valentine’s Day instead of Christmas. The second part of the challenge was to use your newest Big Shot toys to create “this beauty.” No problem! This project uses the Big Shot in abundance.
If you saw my Christmas Advent Calendar, you will notice that this calendar is based on the same design, with the exception that this calendar has 15 cubbies instead of 25. There is one cubbie for each day until Valentine’s Day. The extra cubbie is for a SPECIAL treat (maybe a piece of jewelry or a note to where a bigger gift is hidden) OR you could close off this cubbie if you wish. You will find the Valentine Kiss Calendar Tutorial on my blog on January 3rd.
