Lil' old Me

West Midlands, United Kingdom
I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 20. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 25 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Matchbox Advent Calendar

This is a Matchbox Advent Calendar I made a while ago and forgot to post.  I made to send to our Daughter at Uni. I found the idea a while ago on Pinterest.

Each matchbox is 2"x 3" x 0.5" which fits a Cadburys Freddo choc bar.  I made each matchbox using Ultimate Pro Boxer board and Centura Pearl card.  I then attached 9 together for bottom layer, then 7, then 5, then 3 and the final one at the top.  Each layer is wrapped with DSP Be of Good Cheer  (retired Stampin' Up!) and I diecut each number using 1" number from Die'sire in my Ebosser and I used Xyron 1.5" Create-a-sticker machine to glue the numbers on the front.  Large bow on the top to finish.
Now to buy the choccies to fill for her :)
