At this price, it's worth grabbing (because it's limited edition so it won't be around forever) to use in some home decor all year round - I'm thinking it'd be a cute way to display pictures (maybe instagram pics, cute hanging squares) hanging from those wires and clips. Or mini kid's artwork. Or anything - I know you have ideas!
If you want to see what other crafters have done (you know you do), check out the Silhouette Pinterest Board for their advent calendar - amazing ideas over there!
AND - through Friday, remember that you can get 40% off with the code SUGARBEE - so that means the Advent Calendar that's normally $40 comes out to $24 - what a deal!! Here's the direct link to the Silhouette Advent Calendar and here's what it looks like after you enter the code:
Included are about 20 shapes - remember that shapes are $1 each in the online store, so that's a $20 value right there, and the Advent Calendar only costs $24 - plus a big ole frame, which you couldn't find anywhere for under $15, maybe even $25 - it's like you're making money on the deal :)
A few years ago after Christmas I found a 24 pack of these plastic ornaments that open - I thought they would be PERFECT for an Advent Calendar and I'm super excited to finally finish the project. I just used vinyl numbers to mark each ornament. I meant to go every-other in color, but had an obvious flaw on #13
And look how they open - just snap open and closed...and look - 4 year old candy that was nasty to begin with - awesome:
Anyways, I had these ornaments for years but didn't know how to display them - the Silhouette Advent Calendar was perfect! For $24, it's a steal - so go grab it (even if you don't have a Silhouette Machine, you can still get the Advent Calendar and hang anything you want!).
While you're there getting 40% off, I would add some vinyl to your cart as well. And heat-transfer vinyl for making custom tshirts. And maybe some rhinestones. And.....
