Disney Trip Count Down!!

This past weekend my sister took a break from her own busy life as a working mom and wife to come down and help my husband and I get something things together for our baby arriving this December. So of course I had to show off my Silhouette machine! Her and my Brother-in-law are taking my nephew to Disney land just after Thanksgiving this year, and he is so excited! Well my sister is a pinterest lover and we found this one by Mama Of All Trades and decided Connor needed one! So this is a tutorial about ours!

What you need

-A 9 inch circle cut from card stock backed by a 9 inch piece of chip board to make sturdy (black and white paper)
- An inner scalloped circle measuring (red and white paper)
- A Mickey of course!
-30 clothes pin
-15 red scalloped circles
-15 blue scalloped circles
-30 yellow circles with numbers 1-30 on them measuring to fit inside the red and blue scalloped circles
-A glue gun, runner, stick
-Ribbon for hanging.

 Glue the two 9 inch circles together and then its a simple layering game. Glue on the large scalloped circle and then Mickey with a glue runner and glue stick

Glue even numbers to the small blue scallops and the odd numbers to the red small scallops. After they are glued together hot glue on to the clothes pins. 

Now you are ready to put the numbers around the circle and add your ribbon for hanging!! For our ribbon I did add an eyelet to the top but if you are using a much thicker ribbon you could probably hot glue it on since that ribbon would be stronger than the one we used. The great thing is all we had to buy for this was the clothes pin and you can totally change this up for a holiday count down or a trip to somewhere else. Hey a picture of grandparents and the kids would be cute in the center if you are getting ready to go visit them!
