Fun & Easy 12 Days of Christmas Project

 Hello, Memory Bound friends! 
I hope your weekend is off to a great start! Weekends are the perfect time to do a bit of holiday crafting, and we've got a fun project idea to share with you today. This 12 Days of Christmas project was made with our Doodlebug pre-made envelopes and could not be cuter! This would be a wonderful project to create with kids.

So...when do the 12 Days of Christmas begin, anyway? To be precise, this is the period of time starting with December 25 and continuing to January 5, the Eve of Epiphany. But in popular culture, it sometimes begins on December 14 and continues until Christmas Day, sort of like a mini Advent season.

Our project could be made with any period of time in mind...or instead of numbers, you could place a child's name on each envelope or tuck photos inside. Use any number of envelopes you'd like.  Or...make it for Valentine's Day (12 Days of Love!) using a different color scheme. Be creative!

  Here's what the envelopes look like.

  Overlap the envelopes and adhere them together with Scor-Tape or Tacky Tape or, as we've done, break out the sewing machine and run a line of stitching down each side.

 The envelopes are solid colors, so you can cover the fronts in coordinating Christmas paper. Add bits of pen stitching with our favorite white Uniball Signo pen.

 Add stickers, tags, and labels to each envelope, then attach a ribbon to the top so you can hang it, and you're good to go!
 Stop in and purchase your supplies to make this adorable project this weekend!
Happy weekend crafting!
