mini muffin tin advent calendar?
 
I have admired the mini muffin tin advent calendars several people have posted in the gallery. I just ordered the "25 and Counting" stamp set with hostess credit from my party last night, but now I'm wondering--what kind of magnets are used to attach each day to the muffin tin? Do you just use strips, or cover the entire back of each with magnet?

Thanks for any advice you can pass along!

My friend AnnetteMac made several of these tins last year and they were very popular at our local craft market. If you PM her, I know she would be able to give you some advice and info. She spends more time on the demo side here so she might not read this thread, a PM is the best way to reach her I think. Tell her I sent you :)

I used round .5" ProMag magnets bought at Michael's 50 to a pack.
I wanted them to be strong magnets since for each of my squares I used two layers of card stock with the magnets in between.
