Altered Matchboxes :-)

Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends on the other side of the pond :-) Hope you all have a lovely day with your family and friends :-)

Tammy our teamie on the Totally Papercrafts Challenge challenged us to decorate a matchbox and fill it with crafty goodies for another teamie :-) I was paired up with Joey and this is the box I made for her.

I used my new Hero Arts Down the Chimney stamp and attempted to make it look like Santa was descending into the box delivering pressies ,,, that was my theme anyway !! lol :-)The papers are from a Basic Grey Jovial pad and I used a Martha Stewart Icicle punch and Himalayan snowflake punch. The sentiment is also from a Hero Arts sentiment set and a Digi one made by Tammy. I used black glitter on his boots and crystal glitter everywhere else and a few Robins Nest Dew Drops too. The drawer handle is a Tim Holtz Hitch Fastener

The next box was made for Joey's Daughter, Syd,,, who is also very crafty :-) For this one I used My Minds Eye papers and the image and snowflakes are the die cuts that came with the 12X12 pad. I added glitter to her coat trims for sparkle :-) I added a few Dew Drops and the drawer handle is a pearl brad.
