Quick and Easy Holiday Advent Calendar

I really wanted to make an advent calendar but was worried that with all that was going on, I wouldn’t have time until the month was half over. But then I found this sheet of scrapbook paper in my paper pack:

It was in this paper stack:

Isn’t that great?!?! All the work is done so I just cut out the squares (I cut them on the smaller size because I was worried about how many laminating pouches I had left for this project.

Then wrote some activities for each day:

Ran them through the laminator:

Cut your pieces of magnet strips:

Stick them on the back corners:

And put them on your mini muffin tin, this works well because it doesn’t ruin the tin and there are 24 little cups for a couple pieces of candy built in. This is what I call a win/win =).

Prop it up and let the fun begin!

That one piece of scrapbook paper made the 10$ (on sale from 20$) price of the stack completely worth it, it would have taken me forever to do all the work that was printed on the paper.
