Mini Cupcake pan Advent Calendar

Instructions for these have been floating around for a bit, my sister made a cute one last year http://nancydavies.blogspot.com/2007/12/on-sixth-day-of-christmas.html . I have a few tips born from frustration: Don't use the thin printable magnets you find in Office supply places, go to a sign shop that makes magnetic signs for cars and either buy it by the foot or ask if they have any scraps. If all you can find for a pan (I got mine for $4.50 at *blush* Walmart ) is a teflon coated one be sure to use a wire brush on the end of a drill or other heavy duty tool to strip it before you paint (or leave it grey) PAINT WILL NOT STICK TO TEFLON...at all. Not even a little. You can wash it right off with a cloth even after it has dried overnight. Sanding is not enough.
Besides that it was fun and easy to make. The stamps that I used for the numbers are Melissa Francis and the papers are Basic Grey, My Mind's Eye and Cosmo Cricket. Ribbon is May Arts.

thanks for looking,
Nicole
