Every year I altered a big matchbox to use in my home. This year was no different but I get to enter it in a challenge. hehe

Challenge 24 - Papercraft Recipe
Begins December 8, 2010

Green Holidays
Create an altered holiday gift, card or scrapbook layout
using recycled or repurposed items you already have on hand.


I also make sets of them and put them in a big cello bag, add a tag and Voila...the perfect gift for that unexpected visitor. They are so easy and inexpensive to make you will get addicted to them. wink-wink

Play along!
