Make a beautiful dresser out of handmade matchboxes. This beautiful treasure box can be used as an advent calendar, jewelry box, or a money box. No matter what you choose, opening the tiny drawers can't help but fill you with the holiday spirit!

Step 1: Cut out 24 matchboxes and sleeves

Either die cut 24 matchboxes and sleeves (I used a die), or cut your own, using a tutorial like this one. Be sure each matchbox has a sleeve so it can slide open and closed. Use any scrapbooking or cardmaking cardstock - about 80lb cardstock will be plenty sturdy enough. 
That is uber adorable!
Very sweet!
