A Merry Pink Persimmon Countdown to Christmas Tree

I loved making this tree. We don't have an advent calendar, so this will be a fun addition to our Christmas decorations. Christmas is very exciting this year, Emma is just a couple of weeks away from turning 4 and this year I think she gets it...well at least more than last year. Of course that also means that every single commercial that comes on is something she wants for Christmas. And my little monkey Lily mimics her big sister so she also points and ooohs and aaahs at all the Barbie, vanity, Arial, Fur real, Fisher Price Castle commercials.

I know that you know that my favorite part of this tree are the Small Banners from Pink Persimmon.


The tree is from the Kaiser Craft Off the Page series. There are a few pointers on how I made this tree over on the Pink Persimmon blog. I need to add that I mocked up a set of numbers before I committed them with glue-I wanted to make sure that I didn't miss any number combinations. You get 6 date tags with the tree and you use both sides of each tag. I used all My Mind's Eye paper. The super cute alpha stamps are Large Soda Pop from Pink Persimmon.



I added the glassine envelope to the back to store the numbers not in use, otherwise they would surely get lost in my home! Let me know if you have any questions!
