I made this for a swap I am doing.  I love how it turned out and I thought I'd share.  The boxes are matchboxes with a magnet attached. (Sorry my camera is not great)





Every box has a quote and a piece of chocolate.


Thanks for looking.

This is great! I love how you stuck them to a baking tray haha, it actually looks really good Smiley How do you stop the weight of the chocolates pulling the matchboxes open - do you just have to make sure you don't put anything too heavy in it? I suppose you could also stick them on sideways if this was a problem.

I  used dove chocolates and there was no problems with them opening or being too heavy.

What a neat idea!  Matchboxes work so well for advent calendars but it is always so hard to figure out how to display them.
