Last year a couple of my friends made advent calendars out of mini muffin tins. They were so cute. I have no clue how to link to their blogs or else I would. By the time I got around to making one last year, it was half way through December. So I thought I would get a head start on it this year.
I will apologize in advance, I forgot to rotate my pictures so they are sideways, Oops.
I found a mini muffin tin at Walmart for $4.95. I had to go to two Walmarts to find it.
Using the small circle, on the Creative Memories Large Circle punch, I punched out circles and glued them on the bottom of each hole.
Sean drilled me two holes in the top to hang it up with ribbon.
I made pictures on my Creative Memories Story Book Plus program and printed them on card stock. I used clip art from the Christmas Jewel paper pack. To get 24 pictures though, I had to get a few images off the Internet. My friend Abby used old Christmas ornaments instead of pictures.
Then I mod-podged them to card stock.
Then put magnets on the back and voila! Now I need to come up with 24 different activities for the girls to do each day to hide inside each cup. A special craft, a lunch date, game, etc. If you have any good ideas. Let me know. I am sure I am going to struggle with 24 different things to do.
Thought I'd share this fun picture. My friend Rachel and I went on the Wine Walk with her grandma and mom. It was a fun night walking around the square and wine tasting. Hopefully if we go again next year our friend Angela will be able to join us.
