Happy 1st December: A quick advent calender project

Happy December everyone – let the countdown to Christmas commence!

Here’s a mega-quick advent calender craft project which took me about two hours yesterday.

Yup, it’s made from 24 matchboxes. As a stroke of luck, Swan sell their matches in packs of 24 to supermarkets, so if you can get your friendly shop assistant to part with the box they come in it makes a great stand to stack your little drawers  in. I decorated mine with some gift wrap scraps and drew on the numbers and pictures with Crayola metallic pens.

My design is quite simple, and there are lots of variations on the matchbox calender floating around online – I particularly like these ones!
