Matchbox craft...

What do you do with 24 empty matchboxes? Make them into tiny drawers for your daughter to put all her tiny toys in! I saw this idea at a website: http://www.bubblyfunk.co.uk/index.php and just had to make it! They actually made a matchbox advent calendar, but it's a bit late for that now, so I've made mine for Amber - she has so many tiny shoes, crowns, bags and other bits and bobs from her barbies and princesses and nowhere to put them. Here it is:
Amber loves Aurora, so she's on the top - the little chipboard oval says "Thank heavens for little Princesses". There are 24 drawers, each with a purple paisley liner edged with a doodled line.

Each little drawer has a gold split pin to act as a little knob to pull them out.

One pair of tiny shoes! Amber absolutely loves her new drawers, and I'm now hoping I won't vacuum up any more tiaras or stand on tiny jewelery!
