Christmas Countdown Advant Calendar


This is an advent calendar made from a cookie sheet and matchboxes. The cookie sheet was painted with crackle paint and each matchbox was covered with Cosmo Cricket papers and has a magnet on the back of it so it will stick to the cookie sheet. The boxes contain candies and small gifts to be opened on the days leading up to Christmas.

Martha,
My name is Linda and I am the hostess of a Countdown to Christmas Matchbox Swap on my swap blog, www.aswapforallseasons.blogspot.com
I love your cookie tray display and used this picture as inspiration for ways the swappers can display their matchbox collections in their homes. It is just lovely! Come visit us! Thank you for the inspiration! LInda

I've come here from A Swap For All Seasons blog - your matchbox cookie tray is fabulous! It looks so good and I love the crackle effect you've achieved.
