Cookie Sheet Advent Calendar

Here is my first handmade Christmas gift! I made this for my sister. Since I knew I would see her at Thanksgiving, it was the perfect time to make her an advent calendar. Now she'll be able to enjoy it the whole month of December!
To make the advent calendar, I covered a cookie sheet with paper and cut out a Christmas tree shape. My husband cut holes in the metal and I tied a ribbon through for hanging.

Then I made 24 marble magnets, each one with a different Christmas picture.

The last step was the little lined bag with appliqued snowman. It holds the magnets when they are not on the tree.
