Look What I Made!

This is the cute Advent Calendar I made tonight! All the pieces were given to me last year from my favorite SoCal Scrapper Monica! She was making them for a class at Ever After...the scrap book store I worked at while living in Oceanside, CA. She needed help at her class, I helped and she rewarded my handsomely!!

It is made with a mini-muffin pan...the pieces are then cut out the same size and put on adhesive backed magnet sheets (this is how they stay on the muffin pan!)...then die cut numbers for the days counting up to Christmas! I admit I went a little STICKLES happy and put a lot of glitter on it...but hey, the more glitter the better!

Here is a little peek behind the number 24...you can add sweets or little trinkets behind each number as someone looks behind each number! I am going to take it to work with me in the morning and have one of the guys drill two holes at the top so I can put ribbon in it and hang it from a dowel on the wall!

I don't have kids to enjoy candy each day, but I'll still put it up for fun!

BRILLIANT idea. Thanks for sharing... I think I might want to try and make one of those. SO cute. I've been wanting something that can be a "count down" for Ava and I could even do a different look for a different event, maybe. SO cute.

The nice thing about this is that it uses papers on magnetic sheets...so you could maybe use it for other "countdowns" that have only 24 days!
