25 days of Christmas Completed

Over at Linda Smith's A swap for all seasons blog,
there is a very unusual swap going on.
She is hosting a matchbox exchange.
Everyone involved bought those mini matchboxes
and decorated 25 and inserted 25 wonderful
little gifts tucked inside of each matchbox.
Then numbered each one from 1 to 25.
I ended up doing the first 13 just alike, but inside
of course each gift is different. Then for the rest
of the 25 I did each one different, in a more
victorian look. I like the way the all turned out.

Below are some examples of some of the inside gifts.
It was really some work, but a lot of fun nonetheless.
I will be getting 25 matchboxes in return from
bloggers all over. Then I will use it as an advent
calendar and hang each one on a small tree that I have.
Thanks to Linda for hosting this, her blog is:
