Vintage paper match boxes for Christmas






Went to bed very late last night as I was hooked on making these colourful boxes for Christmas. I've decorated mini and large matchboxes with a variety of paper including some vintage wall paper (boy etc..) and some 60s pink wrapping paper that I've been holding onto for a very long time, waiting for a use! All contain chocolate goodies!
The beautiful fairies on the mini tree are handmade by the wonderful Halinka Fraser. She sells them from her website.

Brian Wildsmith 12 Days of Christmas




I re-discovered this wonderful book whilst unpacking the Christmas decoration boxes. I love Brian's illustrations and use of colour.
