This fabulous idea for a mini-muffin pan Advent calendar is so clever - as the pan is metal, the 24 decorated squares are backed with magnetic strips to hold them in place! Designer Jo-Anne Cavanagh says, “I had such fun thinking up ideas for the 24 squares, and it was a great way to use up my stash! Chocolate coins were the perfect shape and size to pop in the holes behind the squares.” Although this is a big project, you really don't need to go out and buy lots of embellishments - it's much more fun to make your own with standard card making materials and just a few special bits and pieces. In fact, the whole project needn't cost much at all apart from the muffin pan. Why not get the kids involved too, decorating 'windows' of their own?” It's definitely a chance to let your imagination and creativity go, so take inspiration from these ideas, and see what mini festive delights you can make!
