Christmas Advent

Post by Guest on Mon 1 Dec 2008 - 19:34

This is what I was busy with at the weekend and enjoyed it.
The detailed plan is on Bubbly Funk website, and I found it to be a good credit crunch project as I only bought the matchboxes (Tesco around 3), and the rest I already had from my stash.
Once the boxes are painted nd glued together and the chip board is in place too it's really sturdy.

It isn't embellished at all, I don't have anything christmassy but then I rather like it as it is.

It looks good Gillian. I like the colour combos you have used. It looks christmassy enough I think. I really like it.

I made one of these last year for KT for her secret santa present.

Thankyou Helen, after me saying about liking it as it is I've just ordered a Holly die for the cuttlebug, and might get another couple of bits.

It's beautiful, I like it as it is too, but you could place a little something on the top and take it off if you didn't like it. Should last a good few years too, well done.

Fantabulous, Gillian. Love it.

I've got the instructions to make one of these, but not finding the time at the mo. Crying or Very sad I think they're lovely. I want one to keep my brads that won't go in my totes, coloured paperclips, book rings, etc, etc in.

i think these are always great & so cute Mr Green reminds me of when my dad used to make dolly dressers out of matchboxes!

Very pretty Gillian!

I'd love to make one, but i always feel so guilty about the matches I'd have to waste?? Also if I leave them in a bowl around Garfield tends to eat them Rolling Eyes

Oh I love it - it's so neat and tidy. And thanks for the link Lorraine - off to have a look, but it will have to be later not this Christmas as I am behind with everything else. Trouble is, there are so many nice little things to make at this time of year, aren't there?
