First, I bought a new mini muffin tin (because I will be using the one I already have during this time period) with my 40% off coupon at Hobby Lobby.
Next, I cut out squares in four different Christmas prints.
Then I cut out smaller squares of red, green and white card stock followed by a Christmas sticker.
I started with number stickers and decided I didn't like them so back to Hobby Lobby I went to buy number stamps. Before I stamped them all I attached magnets to the top and bottom of each square. I bought the magnet roll at Hobby Lobby for $2.99.
I decided after I had already attached the magnets that I wanted to protect them so I could use them again next year. The best thing I could come up with was to cover each square with packing tape. Had I started my whole project earlier I would have taken them to Kinko's and had them laminated. But, this works.
