Well, last month, when I placed my monthly order, I ended ended up with enough Hostess Dollars to get it FREE! So I got it! When it arrived, I thought, no time, no time. Next year. That is when my upline chimed in and said, let's get together and make one. So I got all excited and got ready, but she had to cancel. So then my mom jumped in and said, "We WILL make them!"
We bought mini muffin tins to build our Advent calendars on. What do you think?

Since the muffin tins only had 24 spots, I added the 25th to the bottom. Here is a close up of the 25th, both outside and inside:
