New Vintage Christmas Advent Calendar Pillow box, Fancy Tag Ornament or Easy Tag Digital Collage sheet

Hello Friends!
I hope you are having a fabulous day!
I am guessing that many of you, like myself are preparing for Thanksgiving!
I have been working on some collage sheets lately, and I just wanted to take a moment to share with you two sets that I will be using the next couple days.
They are my Vintage inspired Christmas Advent Calendar Sheets.
I used images from the Graphic Fairy, the Santa below is one I restored from my friend Sandi, and the cute little snowman on sheet 4 is from my friend Jess.

Let me show you one of the projects from the sheets first.

Pin It!
I LOVE it! 
I am soooo excited about my Collage sheets! 
You can make something super beautiful by just adding a few embellishments!!
First up is my 
Page One
The first page is a pillow box template filled with a beautiful Christmas pattern that I created.  It has the score lines and cut lines visible, but they easily cover up with Vintage Photo or Walnut distress inks from Ranger.  I will be doing a tutorial soon, showing you how to put the box together.

Page Two
Gives you two options.  A fancy shaped tag/Tree ornament, like the one I used above, or a more shaped tag/Tree ornament.  The papers have been flipped, so there is a tag/Ornament front and tag/Ornament back.  The smaller round pieces are to be used for hole re-enforcers.

So, you can create an Advent calendar, or ornaments for the tree, tags for gifts...your choice!!
I designed the pillow box and the tags to work with my 
Traditional Focal Christmas Images
This collage set comes with 5 pages.
Page One
Fits great on my tags or the pillow box above!  They could also be used on cards!  Each sheet has focals, and text boxes, so you can choose what goes on each box, tag or card.

 Page 4
Page 5
I have outlined the numbers so that they will stand out on your project, and if you don't have a digital cutter, they still will be easy to cut out.

Back to the tag I am sharing today.

I used lots of yummy goodies from Really Reasonable Ribbon and of course Glittered it up for the Holidays with my Art Glitter Stash!
I used a Vintage Bonanza Buttonpeppermint baker's twinered satinred dots, crochet lace as well as Juliet laceDeep Ivory Mulberry Roses, a red mulberry rose and Moss leaves.
You can see some of them nice and up close in the photos below.
 Close up of the right.
I used Art Glitter Designer dries clear Glue & Ultra fine Metal Tip to add glue to my Advent tag.  #208 Fauna was used on my candy cane. #79 Black was used on my number 20,  #160 Rose Gold goes around the outside of my tag shape and the #20 shape,  #349 Garnet was used on the Candy cane, red scallop, text boxes, holly berries, hole enforcer and candy cane.   #196 Lion's Mane  was used on the ivory circle and  #295 Ensalada was used on the holly leaves.
 I topped off my tag with a beautiful Red Seam Binding bow made with my Bow it all Tool!  I used the red diagonal trim as my hanger.
One last look at my finished piece.
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
Please check back soon, because I will be doing the pillow box and a tutorial of how to use my sheets!
