The extremely popular matchbox advent calendar printable kit is back for 2013!

Click the button above to purchase, and once you’ve checked out the PDF kit will be sent to the email address associated with your paypal account. Check your trash and spam folders and if its not there in 24hrs please contact me.

the PDF kit contains:

- 24 individually designed matchbox labels by draw! pilgrim, all vintage style with an aged color tint, faux ‘off register’ color overlaps and a variety of european christmas greetings

- one sheet of templates to fold up the matchbox bases/drawers (you’ll need to print multiple copies of this page)

- a template for slips of paper to write notes for treats or activities etc

Customizations are not available on this kit, sorry!

 

what you will need

aside from the kit mentioned above, you’ll need to print the templates on heavy-ish paper or card: regular printer paper is quite flimsy – it’d be ok for using JUST this year, but if you want to use these matchboxes again i recommend something a little heavier, around 300gsm (i believe that’s equivalent to 200lbs weight). printing at home is convenient but for paper advice you might want to splurge and take this project to the print shop where you can see what range of papers they have and decide what will fold best for your needs.

you will also need:

- glue or double sided tape,

- scissors and/or a guillotine paper cutter (it makes cutting down the sheets of labels a bit faster and neater)

a bone folder or scoring tool will really give you great crisp edges when folding.

what to fill the boxes with?

you know your own people best, but some ideas are:

  • tiny candies: jellybeans, m&ms etc
  • individual chocolates
  • hair accessories
  • teensy toys
  • lego minifigs
  • stickers or temporary tattoos

or put in slips of paper hinting at where to find treats that are just a bit too big for the matchbox, e.g.: “look behind the dictionary!” and there will be hidden a new matchbox car or a little bottle of nail polish.

or write a list of treat experiences: “let’s put up the christmas tree!” “let’s go out for egg nog!” “gingerbread decorating day!” etc

how to display your calendar?

  • thread them on a string and hang them as a garland across a mantlepiece or door frame
  • add a strip of magnetic tape and put them up on your fridge
  • leave one each day on their bedside table
  • put one in their lunchbox
  • hang them all vertically on a length of string
  • …or just stick them all to a plain colored poster sheet!

 

so go ahead! its so much fun and a project that the whole family can get involved in.

While you are welcome to create or deconstruct this kit for your own personal use, i ask that you not use any part of it for retail (eg: selling handmade cards using my stamp designs etc)

hey there! drawpilgrim.com has a brand new look.

keep your eyes peeled for more newness coming soon


its almost easter! that can only mean one thing: festive printable time (oh, yeah and eggs and bunnies and stuff) and so i have made for you this very nifty bunny box printable!

 


not only is it my patented super-fun black and white coloring-in version, there is also a full color, ready to print’n'gift template for you! TWO FOR ONE BUNNIES! in fact it’s $2 for two funny bunny box templates in 1 easily downloaded PDF file, and just like real bunnies, you can multiply them infinitely (or rather, print as many as you need – for personal use only though – please don’t sell or reproduce these crafty bunnies)

get a funny bunny box here

why are some printables no longer free?

please note: i do not offer tech support, or customization on printables.


see, this box is clever – the interlocking funny bunny’s face keeps the box closed, and the egg hidden!


 

its big enough to fit a real egg in it (or a whole bunch of tiny chocolate ones) or maybe you could find a fabulous painted wooden pysanky like the one pictured – that one is from little sparrow, the fabulous toy & handcraft supply store i work at a few days a week!

 


i hope you enjoy the funny bunny egg box! and i hope your easter is full of all your favorite treats.

 

moving house sale

Those of you who’ve read this blog and followed me around social media know how dear our home is to us – its been our cozy sanctuary for almost 6 years now, and we really made it our own! We’ve had our pad featured on apartment therapy, the design files, and decor8; as well as in print in the herald sun newspaper, my child magazine, Mollie Makes issue 13 & special ‘home’ issue last month, and most recently the Ikea Family Live march issue!

Sadly, our home’s owner has decided to sell this house, so that means we’ve got to move… and moving is expensive (especially when its unexpected and un-budgeted for!) so please help me raise some funds & re-home some of my most valuable treasures. I’m really sad to let these pieces go, but desperate times mean putting my sentimental nature aside. Up for sale so far: Alphabet Thesaurus: A Treasury of Letter Designs, Vol. 2,  Teal Swedish Hasbeens Jodhpur Clog boots, Mrs. Retro Mama Neo Blythe Doll, and a rare Enid Collins LOVE box purse.

I apologize for the prohibitive international shipping costs – Australia is a loooooong way away, on the up-side: Australian vintage lovers, here is your chance to score some awesome stuff! Any Melbourne buyers are welcome to pick up their purchase from my work in Balaclava, and shipping costs will be refunded if you choose this option.

Thanks in advance for your support.
