I used match boxes, xmas papers, stamps, hot glue and some fun little trinkets!
I started by stamping all of the match boxes with the numbers 1 - 25. Next time I make one of these, I'll save the stamping for the last step so I don't smear any of the ink.
I decided to line each box with a holiday paper to make the calendar even more festive and finished looking.
Next, I glued together the outsides of the the boxes with hot glue. One row of 9, one row of 7, 5, 3 and 1.
Then I cut out the paper to wrap around each row. I scored the paper at the corners and hot glued it around the outside.
I hotglued each of the rows together to form the shape of the tree and added a button to the top.
Then came the fun part, filling each box with a little treats and trinkets!
Let the countdown begin!
