November My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #6 + Giveaway!

by Ilina Crouse November 04, 2018 174 Comments

 

Hello and welcome as we continue the countdown to the release of the November My Monthly Hero Kit! Release day is tomorrow, Monday, November 5th at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific. Hope you enjoyed all the inspiration this weekend! Ilina is here for another look at this wonderful kit.

Hi everyone! I hope you enjoyed all of the projects using the November My Monthly Hero kit. I have little bit different project to share with you. It's a tag countdown/advent calendar. You can write something on the back of the tags or stamp some images. 

To make the tags start by die cutting 24 tags using the Tag Infinity Dies and Kraft Layering Paper. Once you have die cut all the tags using the stamp set from the kit and the following ink pads: Strawberry, Pine, Caramel, Unicorn White and Intense Black inks stamp the numbers 1-24 on the tags and sentiments and images from the set. 

Once all the tags are stamped let the Unicorn White ink dry, then tie golden thread on each of the tags. Once done, arrange and adhere them onto an 8 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of card stock, chipboard or any sturdy surface. 

You can hang it somewhere or keep it as it is. You can write something on the back of the tags to hint to some gifts hidden/placed around the house, or just what is the "item" for that day. Or stamp different images.

 

 

Win a kit before you can buy it! Just leave a comment on this (and every) Countdown to Creativity post! We’ll randomly draw one lucky winner from all the comments left across all countdown posts, and announce the winner first thing Monday morning, November 5th, before the kit launches at 1 pm Eastern. The more you comment, the more chances to win!

Thank you so much for stopping by today and have a crafty day!

This would make for such a fun little scavenger hunt! One of my friends gives her kids one new book a day each day before Christmas, so I might share this idea with her to incorporate it into an even more fun game for her kids where they get to read a clue and find the book themselves.

I really love the concept of this month’s kit and the examples are darling! It is nice to see the nod back to traditions of old as Advent calendars seem to have lost a place in this bigger is surely better world. I say, “Bring them on back!”

Very nice! I love how you arranged the images, text and numbers, so each set of 3 numbers stair-steps up from bottom to the top of the tag, leaving space for the images and text sentiments. It is so fun to see the design inspiration for the new MMH kit each month, and also to see the kit!
