S is for Santa

Hi everyone! I'm here to share my altered matchbox using the Robin's Nest  Christmas  Collection for the Robin's Nest "Christmas Blog Hop" linky party which is going on today.

 Please be sure to hop on over to the Chattering Robin's Blog and checkout everyone else's creations using Robin's Nest products and be sure to become a follower of each blog  and leave a comment too for a chance to win a bottle of the  Christmas Dew Drops because each blog will pick a winner. :-) 
For my project I altered a 300 count matchbox. I covered it with Cindy Lou Swirl Glitter Cardstock.

I printed the "Santa" image from a digital sheet I purchased from Pink Paislee. I inked the edges of the image and adhered it to a piece of red cardstock. 

I added bits of tulle, ribbon, holly and twine decoration to the top of the box. I finished off with some buttons and Christmas Dew Drops.  

The "drawer" I added a pull to make it easier to open.

I filled the inside with crafty bits of fun for my friend to use in some of her many craft projects.
If you have any questions about this project please let me know.
Also I am entering this in the Ellen Hull's Art with Heart Challenge.

Supplies Used: Robin's Nest: Cindy Lou Swirl Glitter Cardstock, Christmas Dew Drops, 300 count matchbox, drawer pull, Chalk Ink, Tulle, Buttons, Twine, Santa Digital Image, Holly
