I have a friend who sells Stampin’ Up and does fun classes that I enjoy going to. Last year she did this fun Mini Muffin Tin Advent Calendar, but I never got the strips of paper made up and put in it, so it just hung on my wall and looked cute. Well, this year, although I’m a few days behind, I did get the papers printed and put in today. I’m excited to use it, and I know my boys will be too.I love the brown, cream, dark red and green color scheme we used on it, and it matches the tree skirt I just finished, that I hope to show you soon.I was excited to find a place to put it this year too. I have SO many Christmas decorations that I don’t even use them all, and I keep making stuff! lol! I can’t help myself, I’m addicted to crafting!So every day we will take one of the covers off and read the paper that is inside. Then hopefully, we’ll do it. 😉 I have good intentions, but I did tell my boys that it just might not happen every day!Here is the list of activities that I came up with.
Do you use an advent calendar? How do you do it? What are some of the activities that you do?

Such a cute idea with the muffin tin! I used mostly candy and a few days have a slip of paper with an extra special activity. I made mine out of toilet paper tubes. 🙂 You can see it here: http://thecozyoldfarmhouse.blogspot.com/2011/12/unique-advent-calendar.html
Hi!! I found your blog from googling “advent mini muffin tin craft” and I am so glad I did. 🙂 I love your post, the listing what to do by Christmas has inspired me. Thanks!
Can you tell me what cupcake pan you used? I can’t find one with holes in the top? Thank you!

I found one that magnets would stick to, and then I drilled my own holes for the ribbon. Drilling metal can leave sharp edges though, so just be careful! 🙂
