A few years ago I made an Advent box for my son, and a couple for other people.. See a couple of the old ones HERE ..
The full instructions for them are HERE... they are so easy though so you really don't need detailed instructions.
This year have made 3 more..
Each Box requires 24 matchboxes. As I was making 3 I had to buy 72 boxes ( this gave me a bag of 2880 matches) Luckily they were half price, so still way,way cheaper than buying empty craft boxes.
The boxes are stacked like this for each Advent.
The boxes are glued together, and strengthened with a base and top piece.
Then you can start to decorate..
The drawers are decorated too, with numbers on the front edge..
and patterned paper on the insides..
Here are my finished cubes.. This silver and blue one for my Mum.
This pink one for one of my nieces.
This one for my stepdad..
and of course they are all filled with chocolates..
I hope you all have your advent calendars ready...
