Advent Calendar Tags & Coordinating Cards, Days 22 & 23

I was inspired to create a new Advent Calendar this year.
I've made 24 numbered tags that I'm displaying on an old window that
will hang on my kitchen wall.

For each tag, I also have a card to share that I made, inspired by the tag.
(You can see my previous tags & cards here.) 

For Day 22's tag, I used PTI's Shaker Shapes: Square dies
with some Teresa Collins patterned paper.

The numbers were diecut using PTI's Book Print Number dies.
I diecut the snowflake using Wplus9's  Snowflake Trio dies and finished
it off with a PTI button.

I used the same patterned paper for my coordinating card.

Again, I used the Wplus9 Snowflake Trio dies.
stamped my sentiment using Reverse Confetti's Seasonal Sentiments.

For Day 23's tag, I used PTI's Shaker Shapes: Tree and the Wplus9 Snowflake Trio dies.

And for my coordinating card, I used some My Mind's Eye patterned paper as my
card base and diecut the tree from some white cardstock. 

Overtop, I adhered two stamped banners and the stamped bird from PTI's Songbirds.
A couple of buttons finish it off.

Before I go, I wanted to also share the tags that I made for Jonah & Sage's teachers' gifts, 

For all of them, I used Wet Paint Holidays stamps and dies, and PTI's Tag Sale 5.

Thanks for looking!

Beautiful Advent calendar! I've been searching for a place that still has that Teresa Collins paper with the snowflakes in stock. Teacher treats look yummy!! Would you consider sharing the recipe?
