So I'm thinking about making an advent calendar from matchboxes but as I'd like to reuse it for years to come I want to make it as sturdy as possible. I've been trying to find wooden or plastic matchboxes everywhere but to no avail - does anyone know where I might be able to get my hands on some? In the UK preferably, but I'll order them from abroad if I have to.
Thanks!

Oh, they look brilliant, thank you!

Didn't occur to me to look outside of craft shops.  Roll Eyes
