Decor Elements Advent Calendar

Here is an advent calendar that I did with the Christmas Countdown Decor Element piece. I used a picture frame, removed the glass and covered the tag board backing with textured poster board. I applied the Decor Element and then screwed a hook into the tag board and trimmed the pointy part off the back of the hook. Many different designer papers were used, I leaned towards holidayish paper. I applied the papers to the raw SU chipboard. Then I diecut them with the Big Shot. I tried using the scallop die that SU carries, but it looked funny. The scallops didn't really go well with the Holiday theme. I am hoping the SU will start carrying the basic dies like circles and ovals. To finish the tags off I used the Crop-a-dile to punch and apply eyelets to the tops of the ovals. I was going to embellish further, but decided I liked the simplicity.
