Santa Matchbox Christmas Tree Decoration

More matchbox Christmas tree decorations today, on which I managed to use up a whole pile of wooden Santa's I had forgotten I’d even got, until I went rummaging in some boxes on the top shelf of my craftroom looking for something completely different!
I have been sitting and putting the matchbox trays together while watching X Factor………
……  and then putting the covers together upstairs, when there is nothing on the tele…………. trying to resist the urge to just try one or two teddies, just to make sure they are not erm…… stale!!!
I am really loving all the possibilities these matchboxes bring …… with ideas for all the year round……
…… and with that in mind I need to keep my eyes open for cheap decorative self adhesive borders, tape and ribbons or dies to cut narrow borders with to decorate the sides, as I am now running low …. though normally I am very much a less is more gal, on these boxes I think the more bling and embellishment the better.

Hi Helen. Love the boxes, you can't have too much bling/glitter at Christmas can you : ) You would think the boxes were made for those teddies wouldn't you, what a perfect fit! Take care.

Hi Helen

Just caught up on loads of your posts, the hard drive on my computer was "critical" so had to get a new one and get it set up!

It has been a blast catching up; I love your bottle brushes. Might have to have a go :)
