Magnetic Matchbook Advent Calendar

Crazy creative holiday idea of the I found a bunch of cookie sheets at Walmart for 96 cents, which was much better than Dollar General or Family Dollar.  Now, I love my magnetic tray chalk board but I knew there had to be something more.

I bought three 10-packs of matchboxes for 99 cents each.  I then spray painted the matchbooks with primer first, then green, red and silver paint.  I primed and painted the cookie sheet as well.

I then cleaned out my junk drawers!  Rabies tags, random buttons, etc. and glued them onto the matchbooks.  Added magnet buttons on the backs and...Voila!  A fun advent calendar that you can put little notes, money, or trinkets into for less than ten bucks!
