Law School Count Down Calendar

I scheduled this post for this morning, and didn't realize when it went up, half the photos where missing! They're here now though :)

My brother is currently in law school, so I told him that I would create a countdown calendar for each week, until the semester (and his first year!) are over!

I found this awesome paper at target on sale for 99¢.

Can we now break for one moment to discuss that it took way too long to figure out how to make the little cents symbol on the computer. Apparently, you have to hit alt 1 5 5...

And we are back. So these are the awesome papers:

Which I combined with these papers that I already had:

To make little 2.5 inch cubes for each week. I filled them up with lots of candies and a little note saying how far through the semester he was. Except, instead of saying "1/16", "2/16", "3/16", etc, I came up with funny things. I'll post those too, but I can't post that until the semester ends, because I don't want to ruin his fun! If you want the list though, just leave me a comment or email me and I will send it to you - just don't show my brother ;)

The cute tags from Pick Your Plum were perfect to put the dates on top of each one!

Here they are all ready to be packaged and shipped!

Have a great (and hopefully long!) weekend!
