Altered Matchboxes.

Hi there.
Yes I have been out of action for a while .but I am back....

Last week I was watching some You Tube ,when I came across this lovely lady who has the channel called Scrappin Happyxo. Pop over and check out her clever challenge, what a clever idea to make some Christmas decorations now, well before festive madness!
Yes ,you guessed, Jeanette challenged us to make altered matchboxes,with a dangle and a loop so that they can hang on a Christmas tree, and she wanted them in white,cream and gold.
I made my own matchbox.Using papers from DCWV called "The Performance Stack""  and I decorated the inside of the box with a tiny Nutcracker from Graphic 45. See videos below for more details
My Daughter Faye also decorated a matchbox, she used come white Bazzil that she embossed and misted, I love the way hers turned out, especially the stamped tickets instead of a dangle!
Here are the video links.

Keep well.
