Want to make an Advent Calendar?

Want to play with 32-count matchboxes?

Now you can do both!

There are a variety of ways that you can make one! I found a couple links for your use:

Craft Log

Martha Stewart

Mi Lado Creativo

[Buy plain white matchboxes](http://www.bakerross.co.uk/product-Craft-Matchboxes-E5321.htm ;Plain matchboxes")

This is a one for one swap. One calendar for one partner. Any little added tidbits are great, but not necessary.

Lets try to stay away from melting things, as this year the warm season is still going in a lot of places.

You will have 25 32-count matchboxes. Please decorate them however you want. Each box needs to have one number from 1 to 25. Each box will also contain one little item. Be it a little note, or a good luck charm, or some Inchies, what ever you want.

I am sorry that this was kind of short notice, but I didn't realize that the season is soon upon us!

Newbies are welcome. Everyone must have a full profile, if you do not, you get one warning before you get booted. I will toss people that I feel will not be up to the task, that means that I will be looking at people's ratings.

Please feel free to ask any questions, either here in the comments or email me!

And above all! Happy swapping!

I love the craft log boxes they are so beautiful...

Would love to play this one, but just ordered a wooden one so had better not or I'll be in trouble with the oh!

This might help those that don't have to time to collect all those match boxes though! http://www.bakerross.co.uk/product-Craft-Matchboxes-E5321.htm

Have fun ladies & gents & I'll be back to have a sneaky peep at peeps creations if that's ok?

I'm sorry everyone. . . I just want to make sure that they arrive before December 1. If I push it out another week, will that be better?

I promise that next year, I will remember to start it way ahead of time! Please look for it!

And yes, this is international.

That is a cool idea! I hadn't thought to look for craft matchboxes online! I'm going to put that link right in the description! Thank you.
