Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge - Make a Calender

A wonderfully different challenge this week over on SCSC they would like to see calenders including advent calenders, which was good for me as I needed to make another matchbox advent calender.  I started this project on Monday, but I've only been able to do it in bits and was getting worried I'd not get it finished in time for the challenge or even for the 1st December, but I finished it off last night.


The last one I made took me just an afternoon and evening, but this one feels like it's taken  **Note to self  - Not an advisable project to start when your not feeling in top form**

Painted 24 matchboxes with acrylic paints.  The tartan and silver embossed card are both from Kanban.  All other embellishments are from my stash.

Anyone need any matches without boxes???, have a massive bag full of matches after now using 48 matchboxes for two projects.

Just need to buy the goodies to go inside them now!!

Thanks for visiting and enjoy your day.
