Count down the days until Christmas with little paper envelopes, sized to hold all sorts of surprises: candy, tickets, tiny toys. Use rubber stamps to ink the dates, and other motifs, on the envelopes. You can also embellish them by adding tags, string, washi tape, and clip art. Then, simply pin the envelopes on a pretty corkboard. (Envelopes, $2.99 for 25; 2½”W x 4″L; michaels.com for stores. Number stamp set, $29.95 for 10; vintage letterpress stamp set, $14.95 for 20; paper-source.com. Snowflake stamp set, $6.59 for three; michaels.com for stores)
Vintage baking molds add a sweet touch to any tree; simply hot-glue ribbon loops to their backs and hang.
This is the best thing you could ever do with extra gingerbread cookies! Don’t forget you can add as many details as you like, glitter anyone?
