A handmade Advent Calendar


 To make this Advent Calendar you start with a cork board, paint it in white with acrylic paint and let it dry. You will need 25 matchboxes, know it is time to reuse all the pretty cards or old calendars. Measure the paper to go around each matchbox. Use a strong ribbon as you will glue the boxes on it...

...in each boxe hide a little surprise, I used silver numbers to mark each box, you could use stamps for the decor and wooden numbers. I added a wooden decor to give a nice finish. Attach the ribbons with tackle to the cork.
 It is very easy to  make and the kids and adults will love it....you can hide a movie ticket, a gift certificate. Decorate as your heart desire...glitter and bling and everything nice.
Have fun!
