Christmas Advent Calendar Tree

Phew that title is a mouth full! Hello all. I-team member Sonja here with my take on the newest JGW Christmas Ornament Tree (currently on sale). Now I wanted to do an advent calendar for my kids because like many of you, mine are driving me nuts asking me when Christmas is! Once I saw this new set in the store, I knew it would be perfect to make it into an advent calendar.

I put in a little extra work as everything from the tree topper, stand arms, and the ornaments are double sided to accommodate the numbers for our countdown.

To bring extra highlights to my pieces, I grabbed my Craftwell eBrush and some Sharpie markers to bring some color to the edges. 
My 5-year-old came over while I was doing this and asked "whoa is that magic". Yes, yes it is! 
Other than using the Cameo 3 and the eBrush, I didn't add any other fancy machinery to this project. I wanted to focus on the project itself.
The front of my tree has numbers 1-12
 I have to say the poinsettia ornament was my favorite out of all of them.

 Flip the tree around and there are numbers 13-24 to finish off the tree
