Advent Calendar

It's the most wonderful time of the year....

Christmas is coming ever closer and what better way to count down the days than with an advent calendar? I confess this is not my own original design but rather one I found on the net. There were no instructions, just a picture of this most wonderful idea!

As you must be gathering, the calendar is actually a 3d one. It was made out of matchboxes, acrylic paint, paper, brads, ribbon and embellishments from my stash.
If anyone would like to know how I created the calendar, feel free to drop me an e-mail and I will send you the instructions.
For now, here is what it looks like:

A view of the entire box with a few drawers pulled out

Side view - you can see the 'feet' I gave it.

I really loved creating this, the idea was just too cute for me not to try it! I hope it gives you all a little more Christmas inspiration.

Hope you have all had a good start to the week, and that this Tuesday is Terrific!
