I love Christmas! It's my favorite time of year. I jumped into my stash of Christmas scrapbooking paper recently and made a few things:

I covered some plain matchboxes I had laying around. All of them are big enough for a gift card or some jewelry except the one with just one Santa Head on it (he's just a little guy!):

Using some of that same paper, I made this sign:

I thought it turned out really cute! The base is some heavy duty chipboard I got at my Dollar Tree. I wish I would've gotten a bunch more of these, cause now when I went back they didn't have them anymore! Sad

Sorry the pics aren't the greatest. My camera's flash died, and this was the best I could do with natural light. New camera has been ordered and is on the way!

C and C always welcome!

They look great but I REALLY like the first one with the reindeer on it.  That's beautiful.  Great job!

Cute!!! I don't have any empty match boxes, however, I have seen a tute about making a box out of a card. So for my friends birthday (coming up!) I got a funny birthday card and I'll cut some slits in it, tape/glue it, and ta-da! A box! Home made box. I don't mean to ramble, haha, it's just your post reminded me of it =) I love it! Reusing something else to make a box and what not instead of just buying a box, lol.

These are so grand.  I keep forgetting to keep my matchboxes.  They all end up in the fire.

I like yours, though.  Great job.
