After registering for Karen Grunberg's FREE "Embrace Imperfection" workshop at BPC, I clicked-over to her personal blog and found some amazing stuff. Like the gorgeous advent calendar shown here. Twelve pocket tags, created with 5 different color schemes, each embellished differently and each with a simple 2x2 square message tag inside the pocket.
I love this project! I wish I had found it sooner, but will definitely making this next year. Karen's blog post includes a materials list, step-by-step instructions and a template for the 2x2 message tag. She evens shares her list of tag messages! There's a bunch of photos of her advent calendar and the individual tags to help jump-start your creativity. Thanks for the inspiration Karen.
