Make It Merry Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to the Make It Merry Blog hop for Adornit!! Can you believe it's nearly Christmas - well if you need some inspiration, start at the very beginning of the blog hop and feast your eyes on some gorgeous Christmas creations that you know you are going to have to make, then hop along to all the other blogs along the way!

Okay so I have created something special for you all! It's a Matchbox Christmas Advent Calendar

24 matchboxes all covered in Christmas paper, and decked out in embellies then filled with chocolate - what more could you want? More pictures perhaps?
All I did was buy some matchboxes from Riot (craft store), wrap them in Christmas Themed PP from Kaiser Craft, stack them in a tree shape then embellish with little things I found in my stash (ribbons, brads, bling, stickers, bells, flowers). I then used 5 different sticker fonts to create the numbering (I didn't put the numbers in order so that the girls would have to hunt for the chocolates), then I filled the little drawers with foiled chocolates that I bought at Big W. It's got a bit of weight in it now that the chocolates are in!

For more fun - hop on over to Rhonda Sue's blog!
