Christmas Flap Book embellishments & photo mats

I have finished making the Christmas Flap book (minus the pictures..because i want photos from this year).
Here is what you will need to finish your book (these 3 pieces of paper from your pad):
Diecuts for the front of the book:
"12" from Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake Art (or any numbers) cut at .63 height (gypsy)
"days of" from Robotz cart cut at .51 height (gypsy)
"Christmas" from Hoot n Holler cart cut at 2.59 height (gypsy)
Cut out the numbers 1-12 from your 12 x 12 sheet and the "Merry Christmas" block found on that sheet.  You will place the numbers on each page as shown in the photo (or where ever you want to based on your photos)

Pages 1-7

Put stocking together as shown and loop the baker's twine in the loop of the stocking.
Use a heavy duty double sided tape to "hang" your stockings at the top of the flap.  Put tape on top of the baker's twine as well.  Tape the Sugar plums tag on top of the "hanging stockings" as shown.
