I featured this idea from her hobby awhile back, and a couple of my friends and I got together to have a hand at them! I am SO happy with how mine turned out! I can't wait to put it to use!
What you need:
- mini muffin tin (Wal-Mart sells them for around $5)
- coordinating scrapbook papers/cardstock
- number stamps, stickers, etc.
- ink pads
- circle punch, or some sort of template or items to trace circles with
- double sided tape or some other adhesive (glue stick, glue dots, etc.)
You'll want to start off punching or tracing your circles. We only had one punch, so we used a lid to trace our largest circles and cut them out. I did four circles of six different patterned papers. My friends used plain cardstock for their larger circles, and then patterned paper for the smaller ones.
Then we punched out the second size of circle. (So much faster!)
I used double sided tape to attach my circles together.
Then I attached magnets to the back of my circles.
We actually used small chipboard circles that we had painted for our smallest circles...
And then stamped the numbers on to. We also inked around our edges.
Again, I used my trusty double sided tape to attach my numbers to my circles.
Then I embellished each of my circles - I used four different kinds of embellishments: ribbon, rhinestones, stickers, swirl clips. You don't have to embellish at all, or don't have to embellish each circle - the sky's the limit!
I haven't done this yet, but you'll want to drill holes at the top so that you can string ribbon through to hang it up. Add some candy, and you're good to go!
Ta-da! All done! It is so cute, I feel so satisfied!
Another fun idea I saw over on Stamp Crazy Lady (another super talented gal from my home town) is to use a regular muffin tin to do a birthday countdown! What kid wouldn't love that!
