Muffin Pan Advent Calendar

I have seen these muffin pan advent calendar's a few times online.  I decided I'd give it a try this year.

Here is what you need:
24 count mini muffin pan
scrapbook paper
card-stock
stickers, punches, etc. for decorating
rubber cement
magnets
ribbon



I didn't take a lot of pictures while making this because honestly, it doesn't require a lot of explanation. Using a circle cutter, I cut 2.25 inch circles out of green card-stock to cover the holes.  I did all my circles green to give it more consistency.



I chose to go with the three main colors: green, brown, silver.  These are the three base colors I use in my home for decorating at Christmas.


On the back of each circle, stick two magnets, one at the top and one at the bottom.  It is important that the circle on the back is card-stock, it needs to be thicker to hold the 'treat' inside the muffin cup.


I wrote my numbers on by hand, but you could use number stickers or stamps as well.




I taught this craft at my church a couple Saturday's ago.  MK and B made one there as well!  Here is there's....

Merry Christmas, let the countdown begin!
