Disney Countdown - Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons

Hey there!! It's Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons DT day!!! I have been having soooo much fun playing with my PPPR digital papers and cutting files! Make sure you head on over to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons store - Lisa has added some super exciting new items today!!! 

 I am so in love with the project I am sharing with you today! We are heading to Disney World just after Christmas and I wanted to create something fun for the girls to give them an idea of how many more sleeps until they get to go. 

I printed off a picture with a lot of Disney characters on it. Next I adhered it onto a piece of cardstock (to make it more sturdy). I needed a way to adhere the countdown squares to the picture without the picture getting torn when the girls took each square off so I added a layer of craft plastic over the picture. 

Next, I created 20 squares in my Silhouette software and filled half the squares with red/white small polka dot digital paper, and the other half with black/white larger polka dot digital paper. Then I added numbers to each square, alternating between the red and black squares. 

The digital paper is from the Love Bug Collection
(doesn't this just scream Minnie Mouse?!)

Next I printed out all my squares and then cut the with my Cameo.  I laid all the squares out over the picture, mixing the numbers up randomly. I mixed the numbers up so that as the girls removed the squares, random characters would appear. I added one line of ATG adhesive along the top of each square and stuck them onto the picture. 

I made a Minnie Mouse silhouette using three circles, grouped them together (cropped), then offset the shape to create the red layer. Next I used a bow from the Silhouette store and filled it with the same polka dot digital paper, then printed, cut it out and put it together. 

To create my title, I used the 99 cent file from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Sentiment Spots 1 Cutting Files...

I hope you loved my project today!! Make sure you head on over to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons blog to check out all the other projects by the DT!!
