3D Advent Calendar

Hi all, I've been away for a while but I'm coming back with some new Christmas projects. Here is my first:

Products used
Quickutz / Lifestyle Crafts
- Matchbox Die (L-CC-020)
- Nesting Frames #3 (DC0176)
-Chandelier 4 X 8 Alphabet

EK Success Circle Punch
Bazzill Bling in sparkle, infatuation, in the pink flat broke and glass slipper 
Silver Mirror Card

Using the Matchbox Die cut out 24 boxes in the desired colours and assemble. You should have 2 parts to each matchbox, the outer casing and the inside box.

With the inside box part of the matchbox, punch out a semi circle in the front so that the drawers are easy to open.

Cut out 24 of the 2nd smallest nesting frames and attach to the front of the match boxes.

Cut out the numbers 1 to 24 in the silver mirror card and attach to the nesting frame on the front on the boxes.

Assemble the 24 outer casing of the matchboxes in the shape of a Christmas tree. I used very fine staples to do this but you can use glue or a very tacky tape.

Insert the inside boxes into each of the outer casings and your advent tree is complete
