Now where to start, I wanted to make a Advent Calendar using some match boxes but could only find really large ones at my supermarket and I had left it too late to find some cheaper so I brought four for Advent Sunday.

I laid them so I could open each drawer and I cover with some white card for a bit extra strength before covering the sides and drawer fronts.



I used Tim Holtz Idea-ology Countdown Brads for my drawers in hindsight they needed a bit of thread wrapped round them to help pull the drawers out.


The papers are Tim Holtz 8 by 8 card pack and I also used Tim Holtz Tree Line die for around the background.
I didn't pay much attention to what size my large Woodland Trees when I ordered them and decided to use one but in the end I used all three. Although the camera didn't pick it up I used Dreamweaver White Embossing Paste and flicked some over the trees to look like snow and layered some to make snow on the ground and fixed my trees and snowman in.

My Tim Holtz Idea-ology Salvaged Snowmen I coloured with copics but it did take a couple of layers.


I brought the The Christmas Chips because I knew if I didn't use them I could use them on a scrapbook page but I did in the end use a few.

Finally because of all the empty spaces I used Simon Says Stamp Glitter Card and some of their Snowflake dies Rina Kadyn and the dots are left over from the Christmas Icon snowflake.
