I got to open my very first giftie of JoAnne's Secret Santa Advent Swap!
So sweet! And I get to open another giftie tomorrow!!
Every day til Christmas!!
The rules were to alter two large matchboxes and stuff with 25 little gifties
and number them from 1 to 25 to be opened one each day til Christmas.
I love my Secret Santa aready
because she made this beautiful matchbox for me:
Oh, yes, you had me at velvet leaves and berries! :)
I am Secret Santa to our lovely hostess, JoAnne.
Because she did the Santa assigning,
there was really no way for me to be secret.
Soooo....here is the matchbox I made for her:
The "house" lifts up and you can insert a flickering tealight within,
so that it looks aglow.
The vintage looking tree is actually a newish tree which I bleached,
then sprayed with glimmermist.
Here are her goodies:
I wanted to wrap them in a variety of wrapping,
the way gifts under the tree look.
I used some Christmas napkins for wrapping,
so that she could reuse them in her artwork.
Okay, okay, here are a couple of cute freebies
for your Christmas crafting:

Have a great weekend!
