Advent Loveliness

I made this advent calendar with the help of my friend, Melissa. I switched it up a little bit, but I'm pretty pleased with the results! It's actually super easy, so if you want to do it, you CAN!

Materials needed:

1 mini cupcake pan (must have 24 slots)
Magnetic sheets - I found them at Wal-Mart in the craft section. I needed two of their packages (super cheap)
Fun Christmas scrapbook paper
Numeral stickers or you can just write the numbers on it yourself


Melissa and I used a magnet as the tracing object for the squares. Cut squares out of the magnetic sheets and then out of the paper. The magnetic paper I found was sticky on one side, so I was able to just attach the paper right to it. Cut out circles and glue them onto your squares and then number each square! And the more creative the better!

That's way cute! I'll have to remember that for next year.

I saw this on your blog last year and really liked it. I have always wanted a count down for Christmas. I made a couple this week with my mother-in-law and they turned out great! Thanks for the idea! I'm even more excited for Christmas and can't wait to give them away to the kids I love in my family.
