A PROJECT OF FIRSTS

Last week over at Somewhat Simple's Linky Party I saw a post by Autie at iCandy Handmade, where she was sharing her Cookie Sheet Calendar. I have been seeing these since last fall, especially around Christmas when they were done as Advent Calendars. I don't know what it was about her's, but I was Totally Inspired to run right out and get the supplies to make one.

Here's my version...
Like stated in the Title of this Post - this was a Project of Firsts. This was my FIRST Modge Podge Project!! Can you believe that? I know - what the heck took me SOO LONG? And, this was my first time to use the glue E600. I think I'm a fan.
I got the 13" X 9" cookie sheet at the Dollar Tree for... wait for it... $1.00. Well, that's not suprising - EVERYTHING at that store is a Dollar. LOVE that store.
I used seven coordinating papers in Black and White, and cut out the Chartruese numbers and letters on my Cricut.
I used velcro rather than magnets - mostly due to cost - velcro... WAY cheaper!

I LOVE that it can be used year after year, you just have to switch up the numbers.

Thanks Autie for answering all my questions, and helping me make this Fabulously Stunning Cookie Sheet Calendar. Go Here to see Autie's Inspiration!

I think I'm going to whip up a few and sell them this summer at our local Farmer's Market.
