Made this for my partner in the 12 days of Christmas swap last year.  The first 12 day cards were the tags on her gifts so she'd know what to open.  The base is an old cigar box and the back opens to hold the cards.  (Don't know why they are sideways - sorry!)

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

Love how the cards all fit inside, and I adore the dimensionality of it.  Well done.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Ooh, this is super cute! It would be fun to put something nifty into the box each day for the kids to open and find, they would adore it!

I've also done them with little matchboxes - if you want to put a little item or note for each day.  Wish I'd though of it when my kids were small!  I did a Halloween one with a list of items appropriate to the 4 year old it was aimed at. 

I really love a good countdown ;-)

Thanks for all your positive comments.  These are great fun to do.  I need to make our house a Halloween countdown!
