Monday Montage 29

It's time for another Monday Montage Blog Hop!  Make sure you check out all 10 blogs for some amazing projects.  These girls always inspire me.

I love Advent calendars…..probably because it cuts down on the "How Much Longer" conversations with my kids.  It always helps to have a visual.  So you can imagine how excited I was to see the 25 Days stamp set and this project in the new catalog.

I decided to stamp the images on Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, and Crumb Cake cardstock squares with the Memento Black ink pad just as it was shown above.  Then, I adhered a magnetic sheet to the back of each square and placed the squares over the openings of a mini muffin pan.

There is enough room in each opening for a small piece of candy or gift.  I think this would be a perfect gift for my neighbors….I'll simply add a muffin mix for them to enjoy!

If you would like to see my original version of the Muffin Tin Advent calendar, click here.  It's one of my most popular posts on my blog and apparently it's pretty popular on Pinterest, too!

Now you may be worried that the 25 Days stamp set is not very versatile, but why not use it to created customized birthday cards?  My daughter turned 8 and my son turned 17 this month, so I used their favorite colors for inspiration.  Here are a couple of "real-life" cards for when you need that last-minute birthday card.
