Magnetic Advent Calendar

Hello! It's Holiday Blitz week at Splitcoast Stampers this week. I made a magnetic advent calendar tutorial for day 3. I would love it if you have a chance to check it out! Written and video tutorial can be found on SCS, here. :)

Last year, I made a similar calendar (here). When Beate asked me to write the tutorial, I was excited for the chance to re-work the calendar since there were things I wish I had done differently. I used the same red magnetic board (14" x 24"), but I started with new tins and gave my Christmas countdown calendar a facelift.

ETA: I will be filling these tins with treats for Sabrina to count down the days until Christmas. If the tin is too small to fit the treat for a particular day, then I will probably add a little note to tell her where to find her treat!

Here are a few of detail shots (upper):
