After coloring them I set out to make my project.
I made 24 small match boxes out of white card stock
I made a larger box  3 by 3 out of Garden Green card stock
I used two pieces of chipboard for the top and bottom covered them with one side in Real Red cardstock and the other side in Garden Green Cardstock.
the top was covered around the edge with a sweater trim ribbon in Gumball Green.
the ribbon I bought from the dollar store and made it into a gift bow and attached
it to the top of the 3 by 3 box.
the mini pearl brads and numbers were added to the match boxes.
the 25th was added to the top box using sizzix dies.

The boxes were then stacked in columns of 6 and card stock and designer paper from Sherri's Candy Cane Holiday Paper Pack were
Here are the pictures of the images on the sides of the boxes



Finally it is all assembled, and here is the final result, from two different angles
