How many Days!?

|By Kayla Domeyer| Downloads, For the Home, Gifts, Holiday, Paper Crafts

My Mother’s family is rather large. She is one of 6 children, all of which have their own kids and a couple have Grandbabies too. Both of her parents are still alive, and so we have Thanksgiving at their house. Its a big deal for us all, and especially for those of us that have to travel several hours and coordinate food, luggage, traffic, etc. So yeah- I’ve made this “Days Until Thanksgiving” countdown. It keeps things from sneaking up on me! When the countdown says 3, I need to get groceries for our treats. 2 means I have to do laundry including what I want to wear the day of. 1 means I have to pack the car and prep to leave tomorrow morning. Its nice to be reminded. =D Download the template here.  

 

What You Need:

  • Heavy Card stock
  • Printer
  • Glue
  • Scissors

How To Make It:

  1. Print out the template on a heavy card stock.
  2. Cut out the designs along the solid lines.
  3. Score along all of the fold lines. Fold and crease them.
  4. For the first numbered block, glue the tab near the number 2 face to the edge of the 0 face. For the next, glue the tab near the 8 face to the 1 face.
  5. Fold in the other sides, and glue the top and bottom shut.
  6. For the outer sleeve/box, fold so that the letter A touches A, B touches B and so on. Use a dab of glue to hold these tabs together. Let dry.
  7. Glue the tabs to the short side of the box, to create a flush inside space for the blocks. Let dry.
  8. Place blocks in sleeve!
