A glittery Christmas countdown

If you're a regular visitor here on the LMT blog, you've probably noticed that the design team girls have been having lots of fun with the 12x12 glitter adhesive sheets.  Well, it's Jaclyn here today to share with you another idea for this fun and decidedly festive product!

Since I have little ones at home, we love to find ways to countdown the days leading up to Christmas.  We've adopted the tradition of wrapping up 24 of our holiday books and unwrapping and reading together one each night before bedtime.  In year's past, sometimes the books get wrapped up neatly and other times they are all stuffed in the basket at the last minute (!).  This year, I prepped a little early and was able to wrap AND decorate each book with a glittery number tag, for each day of December.

The glitter adhesive sheets make this project oh-so-simple and quick, especially if you have access to an electronic die cutting machine.  I found a fun circular number file in the silhouette store by Karla Dudley.  By adjusting my machine's cut settings properly, I was able to cut through the glitter sheets with ease.

This left me with 24 custom made, glitter stickers that I then adhered to a circle of white cardstock for added effect and focus.

Have you tried cutting any specialty mediums in your electronic cutter?  If not, give it a try - the results are sure to be fun and addicting!
