Just a reminder - the mail by date for swappers is coming up- Monday, November 30.
I know some have been mailed out and received, and when both parties have their boxes, I hope they will write a post with pix and link to me. I will share the links with everyone!
I even got 2 thank yous in the mail for hosting the swap!! Thank you , thank you - I will post pix of those soon also!!!! I am looking forward to doing another swap soon!!!
My matchbox is hidden inside this little box- don't want to show you yet - until I am sure my swap partner has received it!!!
Coincidentally, I was just flipping thru this month's Country Living Magazine - and on page 114 is a how-to for making an Advent Calendar out of mini matchboxes!! Very cool!!!
25 matchboxes are stacked on their sides, to make a tree shape.There are 5 rows, with 9 boxes on the base up to 1 at the top. Each row was wrapped in festive paper, and the end of each box was numbered, 1-25. Inside each little box is a treat for the appropriate day. Very simple idea- you could make this and be as plain or as over the top as you wanted!
