Matchbox Advent Calendar

Another project from last year. This time for my daughter to give to one of her friends. The whole thing took me hours to complete, but I loved doing it. One of my goals for this year is to get six of these made before this Christmas, so my daughter can give them to each of her gym group members and her coach.

The hardest thing about the project was finding gifts small enough to fit in the matchboxes. Nice chocolates are fairly easy to come by, but we spent weeks looking for other goodies. We finally settled on hairbands, hair slides, phone charm, key ring, mood ring and some very small crafting goodies.
