Matchbox Advent Calendar


Last year's blue one!


I made a Matchbox Advent Calendar last year and liked it so much I have made another this year. This year's one is in reds and greens, and I used Cosmo Cricket Christmas papers and some HOTP together with some CC chipboard shapes to decorate. I think I will make one a year and build up a collection!

I am entering this for the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge as I have just seen their challenge is to make a calendar, which can be an Advent Calendar!

These really seem to be the crafty thing of the minute, I've seen so many while blog hopping but yours are beautiful Lesley. What a great idea to have a different one each idea. I love last years blue one and this years is completely different, they must take you ages. Just stunning.
