I recently signed up for the Countdown to Christmas Match Box Swap. I purchased my match boxes at the Dollar Store this week. Today made my first box. I wanted to try out my ideas and see if they would work. I painted the inside sliding section with green paint and added a ribbon hanger and a drawer pull made from a gold brad and pony bead. I covered the outer box with Christmas sheet music, added Stickles glitter, gold trim, and a Christmas embellishment. I distressed the edges with Ranger Distress ink. I'm quite pleased with the prototype and think I'll use this basic idea for my other boxes.
We are to put a little something special in each box. I working on collecting my special items to include. What a fun way to celebrate the holidays. We will receive 25 match boxes from 25 different people.
