More creations for you

Hi all,
This is the first of a few posts today - I am just popping up some things I have recently created.

First up is my Gingerbread man Countdown Calendar. I was inspired by Kerryn's Countdown Gingerbread men calendars, so had to make one of my own.

Products used:
(all links will take you to the Little Scrapbook Shop shop)
~ KaiserCraft OTP Wooden Gingerbread man album (thanks Jenni)
~ KaiserCraft Paint (green - thanks Jenni)
~ KaiserCraft 12x12 Christmas paper (mine was from last year's range, but there are some lovely papers in this year's range)
~ Silver rings (KaiserCraft have silver and lots of other colours too)
~ Ribbon from stash
~ Various Rub-ons from stash
~ KI Memories Little Softies
~ Large brads (with the prongs removed with shank pliers)
~ Adhesives - Pritt Power Gel and Pritt power glue stick
~ Rik rak from Jenni's stash (check out the rik rak in the shop here)
~ Crop-a-dile and large eyelets (from stash)
~ white cardstock and cold laminate (clear self-adhesive vinyl)
~ The little xmas tree and lollie etc are from a $2 pack of wine glass charms from a bargain shop.

Some techniques used:

Used Pritt glue stick to adhere paper to the gingies after I coated them with green paint.
The eyes are made from large brads which had the prongs removed with a button shank removing tool. They are stuck on with the Pritt Power Gel (I LOVE this stuff!!!!!)

Have a great day!
