For this project I used a black picture frame with 8-4"x6" openings and removed the glass. I cut out 8-4"x6" pieces of patterned paper and added a few embellishments. Then I cut out 31 small pieces (1 3/4" x 1 1/8") of patterned paper to use as the pockets. On those pieces I added some random rub-on numbers for the countdown days and inked the edges with black ink. To attach the pockets to the paper I added a thin line of adhesive along the sides and bottom of the back side of the paper, then I put them on the patterned paper and stuck a popsicle stick in the top half to form the pocket. After all the pockets were attached I cut the popsicle stick down to about 2" and painted it black then added a cute ghost to the top of the stick as our marker for counting down the days. To finish it off I added a couple more embellishments to the paper and to the frame.
