Sharing my frugal & fast but cute Countdown For kids!

Hiya! i'm so excited that i found a cute countdown idea within my budget. Total cost was $7.00 (2 spools of ribbon) 48 paint chip samples and about 90 minutes of time.

We are staying at AOA, Nemo -thought the ribbon & color scheme was a cute touch. I saw similar countdowns online using the Mickey Head Paint Chips, but our local store is no longer displaying the samples...something about too many people taking them for arts & crafts

Thanks for looking!! I know my DH won't be too excited,so i had to share it with people who get it!

PS i just finished it & hung it up just to try it out so ignore the ribbon hanging down. I will be starting to countdown next friday, when we tell our kids. & the pictures are cruddy (camera phone)

I wanted something that wouldn't take a lot of time or talent I know scallop cutting or some other fancy scissors move (to remove the paint color info) would look better.
