Advent muffin tin

BonnieBlue is having a hard time understanding that today is not Christmas, and by today I mean everyday. So I made her this:

Once again, I can't remember what site I saw this on, but when I googled it, there were 20 or so sites that were featuring them, so I don't feel too badly about posting mine at all. I had to buy a 2.5 inch punch, which I've wanted for awhile, so it was a double goody.

It took me BonnieBlue's naptime yesterday to complete it. I used a 12 muffin mini-tin and scrapbook stuff to make the disks. A little dab of hot glue to make 'em stick and there ya' go. Oh, and I put one rolo or chocolate kiss in each muffin. This tin already had a hole drilled in it (which, now that I think of it, why?) so I slipped a nice wide ribbon through, and it's hanging on the back of one of dining room chairs.

Next year I'll try to start on Dec. 1, but I'll need to buy a 24 mini-tin.

  1. That's really cute. I'll have to show you the one I picked up for Elsa. You could make it, but I didn't have time and bought it already made by a crafter. It uses a cookie sheet and little metal tins with clear lids. They stick to it with magnets. I put jelly bellies in each tin (they are numbered) and she opens one every day and has a couple of jelly beans. It's super cute.

    I like that you actually made yours!
