Matchbox Advent Calendar

I am in love with this matchbox advent calendar from Martha Stewart:

I think it would be so fun to let the kids have next to their beds and I can leave them cute little notes fore each day of the month!

I will have to see if I can find 96 little match boxes at the store!

We made something similar when my boys were little and I was their cub scout leader. We prettied them up a little more and gave them to grandmas and moms for mothers' day to use to put their earrings in. We used brads and beads for little drawer pulls and lined the inside bottoms of the matchboxes with velvet.

Walmart here carries them. I bought some last year but decided they were too small. My friend had a sizzix die cut of a bigger one, so I used that.

Hmmm...Interesting idea Lbug! I wonder if I could find one for my Silhouette?

Nancy, the brads for pulls is a great idea! I know I have a TON of those lying around!

When I made an advent calendar for my friend I got them through an etsy sell. She actually has vintage mosquito repellant boxes that are longer than small math boxes, they smell a little funny, but other than that they work great.
