Using the Matchbox Die cut out 24 boxes in the desired colors and assemble. You should have 2 parts to each matchbox, the outer casing and the inside box.

With the inside box part of the matchbox, punch out a semi-circle in the front so that the drawers are easy to open.

Cut out 24 of the 2nd smallest nesting frames and attach to the front of the match boxes.
Cut out the numbers 1 to 24 in the silver mirror card and attach to the nesting frame on the front on the boxes.

Insert the inside boxes into each of the outer casings and your advent tree is complete
