I'm in the process of altering 25 (yes 25!) matchboxes for the 'Countdown to Christmas' matchbox swap (well, it seemed like a good idea at the time!)
The matchboxes came from the Pound Shop (3 packs of 10), I've disposed of all the matches and primed the boxes with white acrylic paint.
So far I've worked on just seven of them - stuck scrapbook paper on, edged with gold marker pen, stuck a used Christmas postage stamp on and a little bit of rubber stamping.
They're not finished yet though, they need a bit of sparkle - and ribbon - I've been amassing on my desk all the Christmassy type ribbon and bits I can find in my stash.
There's also the little job of making 25 gifts to go inside the matchboxes! I've made one so far (the little hanging decoration you may be able to see in the photo above in the little tray).
Maybe next Wednesday I'll be able to show how far I've got - I'd better get a move on as they need to be finished and posted off by 15th October - which I know seems a long way off, but I am so easily distracted.
I hope to look at some of the other WOYWW desks today - what could be a nicer distraction than that!
Thanks for looking today and I hope you'll come back for another nosey around my craft room sometime.
