Christmas decorations

Hello and welcome back to my crafting corner again. The Christmas spirit is high and I have bought my first Chrismas decorations for this year. Three very cute little Christmas figures with led lamps in them. I would never have bought them if I had seen that they change colour all the time, but my boys love them and I find a nice place to put them, where I don't see them that often. LoL

And why am I talking about Christmas decorations then? Well, that is our theme this week over at Winter Wonderland. Christmas decorations... well, to be honest I was not sure if I should make a card with Christmas decorations or to make a decoration to use. I went for the last one as I always make something for my boys teachers for Christmas I thought this was a great start.

To decorate the matchbox I have used some designer papers that I had left over from a card project earlier this fall. They are from the latest collection from Maja Design. I kept it simple and left the short sides undecorated as you ligth your matches there. I used a few spellbinder dies to make a back drop for my "God Jul" sentiment (merry Christmas) and put a few matching roses on there as well. The red card stock looks really bright but that has to be me who has done something, the light maybe as it isn't this bright IRL. I also have used some red stickles around the edges and on the letters. And on the roses of course...

Then comes the even simpler candlelight decorations. I just formed a ring with some flowerwire and then twisted the roses around the ring. And yes I know paper and candles doesn't match that well. That's why I have ordered some electrical onces that hasn't arrived jet but are the same size. If not, I just untwist the ends and make them a little bigger. Nice and easy. And it looks quite pretty too. :) Looks way harder than it is.

Well then what will you come up with for this challenge? What ever it is make sure to share it with us and we come and visit you. I would love to get a few more extra ideas to make for Christmas.

Ok, that would be all for this week. Now it's time to relax and maybe take a look at my purchase books. I have been home sick a few days this week. A really swollen throat and I sound like a crow that has sung too long. Do these birds sing? Hmm, don't know if you can call it that but that's how I sound at the moment. LoL

Have a great weekend and see you soon again.

Love n hugs
