Lots of vintage goodness is in this bundle of supplies. Make your very own Junk Drawer Advent Calendar à la 2 Gypsy Girls (Paula Cheney and Deb Crouse - used with permission). Of course this will be so beautiful that you may want to display it year-round. With 40 tags, you can make some non-holiday tags and do just that! Use the wide variety of vintage papers, fabrics and trims to create your backgrounds and embellish with the small treasures in your bundle. You might want to add some of your own photos or trinkets to personalize your display piece.
You'll need your own display board, adhesives, markers, inks (if desired), needle and thread, etc. You can use your own designs for your tags, or find ideas online. With your purchase, I will send you a list of links and some ideas of my own for inspiration.
The colour options are printed onto the photo for each of the six options, i.e. the colour of the butter pat you want. Note that the green and brown butter pats have been repaired. It's unlikely the repair will be noticed when your display is complete.

I have completed one Junk Drawer Advent Calendar with my friend Paulette but being a bit of a crow, I collected more items that I thought would make another advent calendar, or just more tags for year-round display. Well, I've done that now and it's time to share these treasures from me to you!
