Well, with moving several times since my son has been born means you loose things. Like the advent calendar. It has been a tradition to countdown the days to Christmas.
To the rescue comes Pinterest and my Cricut. Here is the pin that was the inspiration. So I started by looking through Cricut Design Space till I found this cute little guy.
It was very simple to put together. I cut the layers out. Glued those layer together. Then,I just cut out 24 circles that were about a half inch. I wrote the numbers on. Bam! Done in about 30 minutes. Now every night a cotton ball will be added to his beard.
