Another Advent Tag

Shameless plug:  Looking for inspiration? Drop by the UKScrappers Home Page every day for a variety of holiday projects.  There will be links to tutorials and members can be in with a chance to win a few prizes, including a Daylight lamp (UK resident members only), tickets to the Make It show in Farnborough in February, and a voucher to a UKS Sponsor shop.

Today is the day DD has insisted we put up the tree.  Not much time for crafty play, but I am still a day ahead making the tags for her new Advent calendar.  I did change out the numbers.  I like the black stencil numbers filled with gold glitter paper:

I learned from my last attempt at stencil letters.  I just cut them all quickly with Scal. popped out the number bits and backed it with some glittery paper. *I* would have chosen glitter paper that was black, so the glitter effect wasn’t quite so intensely sparkly, but then this is meant to be to DDs taste more than my own, and this paper does match the littler glittery ornaments so…

But I do like it better than the original number option:

and now (and I will replace the one on the first tag, just not in time to photo it):

I may still add some pearl bead drapes, maybe, when I find my strand of smaller beads, but over all I expect she will be quite pleased with it.  Now, where is that stash of chocolate coins?  Or should I get some Quality Streets instead?  Gaaaa!  Too may decisions…
