Matchbox swap

Hello and welcome to December. I was able to join in the matchbox swap. This was a real arts and crafts project for myself. We had to decorate a total of 25 matchboxes and place a small tinker inside. I was so excited to get all 25 in the mail. ALL of them came in there own little baggie and it has been fun going thru each and every one. I will post each one so you can see how darn cute they all are. I am going to place them on a small tree and cherish them always.

The first one you see in the photo was made by Shannon Linde of Madison, WI. I love the colors she used, she placed a book mark inside that is so charming. Stop by and say hi to Shannon at Quilting in pinks, Bulldogs at my side. Thanks again Shannon and hope you are having fun as well with yours. HUGS MARY

Hi Mary!! Yours was my very first matchbox too! It is beautiful! I love angels, so when I opened it up, I thought how perfect! Thank you so much for taking the time to make such a beautiful ornament for me! I see that you received mine and I am so glad you like it! Merry Christmas to you! Shannon
