So I was inspired by this website to make an advent calendar. It was very easy to do using a mini muffin tin some card stock and a sheet of scrapbook paper that had all the numbers printed on it and a few magnets. I filled each hole with a piece of candy and a scripture verse to be read each day, telling the story of the first coming of Christ.
Mine was done very simply because I didn't have time to do any thing else, since I only put it together yesterday, I may or may not add a few little embellishments to a few numbers or add December at the top or I may just leave it alone. I didn't paint the tin as recommended, that way I can put it back in the drawer after Christmas.
Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign; the virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel. Isaiah 7:14
