Countdown Day 4

Todays box is from Bonnie of Bonnie Lassie and is all the way from Oregan. The box features a 1935 christmas scene which is really cute and is covered in music paper written in German I think so possibly a carol. Inside was a darling snowflake tree hanging.

My box 4 theme was christmas trees. I made the box from christmas craft paper and a tree embelishment .

And popped a handmade christmas tree badge inside. Made from a silver button, pom pom. felt and an old earing.Hope the recipient enjoys. I had such fun making it.

Showing the back of the box trying out a different flower pounch.


  1. How lovely, another stitched item Mrs A. Love your matchbox too.

    I've been keeping an eye out for your number 1 gingerbread man on my blog travels, but think you may be right, someone's eaten him!

  2. That's a really sweet image on the front of today's matchbox, and I love the stitched snowflake ornament. I admire anyone who has the talent and patience to hand embroider anything. The box you made is lovely. Sherry made me crack up about your gingerbread man being eaten. ;-) Thank you for the flattering comment you left on Linda's blog about hoping to get one of my really made my day! Hope you day is great.
