I decided to start Christmas projects early this year. I am making an advent calendar for my grand kids. I have to make each block twice. I found that if you coat 140# water paper with glossy accents, it becomes bendable. Because of this, it should hold up. I will stitch each block on to felt when I am done. Each 6x6 block will be a pocket. I may have to do this block over if I have the energy. I used micro glaze to to make the distress stains permanent, however, there was some stain on the back of the reindeer. So there is some smearing, but imperfection are part of art, right!
