Countdown to Christmas Calendar: Part 1 of 5

The first step in creating the "Countdown to Christmas" calendar is to make twenty-four matchboxes.  I made these with the Sizzix matchbox die.  (I also made a template for you to use if you don't have a Sizzix machine.  Click HERE for the template.) I highly recommend using the die, however, unless you have a ton of time on your hands to copy, cut, score, and assemble twenty-four boxes and lids.  (You can also order the boxes for $1 each by sending an email to
