Hi all!

I had an email request from Linda for a Matchbox cut file to be made into Advent Calendars so that’s what I have for you today, I even had a bash at making an Advent Calendar myself…hmm not sure that I pulled it off ;) I’ve also added a template version of the Matchbox if you don’t have an electronic cutting machine or wish to cut one out with scissors or a craft knife.

I made a couple of larger Matchboxes and I really like being able to have the box in one colour and the sleeve in a completely different colour or pattern, its not an effect you can easily achieve with other styles of box so I’ll be putting this cut file to plenty of use. I cut my boxes out of some white core card, if you don’t like being able to see the white peeking through the dash lines you can use some solid core card.

    Thank you for all the free and fun templates here. I don’t have any kind of cutting machine-just my fingers and scissors! But many of these are prefect for simple boxes and birdhouses.
