December 4

Day 4 of the Countdown to Christmas. Here is the matchbox I made:

This is the matchbox I received from Peace Schuyler:

I'm also doing a Christmas Song ATC swap. I LOVE Christmas music, and don't listen to only at Christmas time. One of my favorite songs is Perry Como's "There's No Place Like Home for the Holidays." I was inspired by this adorable paper from October Afternoon.

I cut the little houses from the paper and glued them to sheet music covered cardstock. Then I typed the song title on my old typewriter, cut it out, and glued it on. I used my Marvy Snow Marker to make "puffy" snow on all the rooftops, then added Diamond Stickles for sparkle.

I made an extra one for myself and added two eyelets at the top with a string to hang on my Christmas tree.

I love all the matchboxes you made, the sweet little vintage images on the front are divine - great style! Your house ATCs are wonderful too - I think I'd have kept one back too. So very pretty!
