My Countdown to Christmas is Complete

My Countdown to Christmas Match Box Swap is complete.  I started working on the little boxes quite awhile ago but just completed them today.  The top shows the outside of the boxes with embellishments.  The bottom shows the little surprises I have included in each box.  They aren't necessarily in the same order that they will go into the covers.  I have not tried to match the surprise to the outside cover.  They will be assembled randomly.  Items include game pieces, buttons, vintage jewelry, erasers, brads, and small Christmas decorations.

In December, I will post each box and it's contents along with the box I receive and it's contents.  What a fun swap this will be and it will last for 25 days.  My boxes will be packed and mailed next week.

oh my gosh! these are adorable......what an awesome idea.....so where do you get the plain matchboxes?

Melinda, you buy them at the Dollar Store with matches in them. I now have a large bag of matches that I'll give my DH for his hunting and camping trips.

My countdown to Christmas is not complete yet. But I love how you did them all different and put the beads on the bottom. Really cute. Maybe I will get one of yours or visa-versa.

That would be fun!
