Traditional Christmas Advent Calendar Matchboxes | Tim Holtz Matchbox Bigz Dies Week 4


Hello everyone and thank you so much for joining me for week 4 of the advent matchbox calendar!! This week I really wanted to make something a bit more traditional so I went for a christmas wrapping style design, Let's jump right in!!


I ended up using the same Kraft Heavy stock as I did from the first week because I thought these would look really good with a Kraft base. I wont go into the box building itself in this post as I talk about it and show it in week 1's post and video which you can find here. I am only going to focus on how I decorated this set of boxes. I pulled out a beautiful pattern paper from my stash by Echo Park, sadly its no longer avaliable but any pattern paper would do. I used the match box die and cut out the pattern paper into the wrap that goes around the boxes and adhered it to the box. I then cut out the box pieces and assmebled them with some silver mirror cardstock, and trimmer out 1/4 inch pieces to wrap around the box as if it was ribbon. I also cut a small tag out of the same kraft cardstock and hand wrote the number on them with a silver Posca marker and White gel pen. I used some bakers twine to attach the tag and adhered it under the bow.


I hope I explained that well enough.. if not or you want a more in-depth look at how I created these boxes please check out the video below where I have a step by step tutorial, I also have a full supplies list below the video in case you would like to know exaclty what I used. Thank you so much for stopping by and I cannot wait to see you again soon!!
