Advent calendar - half finished.




After seeing many of these advent calendars on various blogs i decided to give it a go myself, i painted and papered it all but after assembling it realised because of the coats of paints the inner matchboxes are too tight a fit to open freely, I wonder if anyone else has had this problem?


so i will pop down to the shops tomorrow and purchase another 24 boxes of matches only this time im only going to coat the front of the inner matchbox then it should be a perfect fit, whilst im waiting for the paint to dry i will add a topper and various otheer items and post the totally revamped finished item here tomorrow.
