My Xmas Advent Calendar.....

So this is the post that many of you have been waiting for....it all started with one little mini muffin tin, some paper, some magnets, some punches, some markers...and of course...some chocolate!!!! I had seen this done before a couple of times and wanted to try it out for myself. So this is how I made it...I cut large circles out of cardboard (using heavy material so it would stand up to lots of touching!!) I used the Big Shot to cut these out. Then I cut the same sized circle out of DSP that was Christmas themed and adhered it to the cardboard circles. I then used little magnets (2 per circle) and stuck them to the back with glue dots.
Then I placed each circle over the muffin tin hole. Now comes the fun part...time to embellish!
Using Christmas Themed Stamp Sets (all from Stampin Up) and Die Cuts for the Big Shot, and punches too...I got busy!!! I also used glitter, brads, paperclips & ribbon, as well as dimentionals to pop each embellished circle. Then I used the Big Shot once again to cut out letters to spell..."Days Till Christmas" and used my 2 Way Glue Pen to adhere them onto the top piece of cardstock and bottom piece of cardstock.

I punched tiny little snowflakes out and freehanded the numbers on them because I didn't want them too big, taking away from all the other goodies on the advent calendar.
So this is the finished product!!! Let me know what you think! All that is really left to do is tie a ribbon to the top to hang it (my neighbor is going to do that tonight for me) and fill with Choc-o-late!! YUM YUM!!! Hope you enjoyed!!!! I am offering this as a class in a couple of weeks if anyone is interested. Cost for the class will be $50.00. What a great way to celebrate the holiday season!!!
MWAH~
