Everyone Loves Christmas ..

Hello my dear friends,

I think I have made a matchbox creation every Christmas since the past 3 years now and this year is no different. I had a few matchboxes leftover from last year, already covered in old book pages and waiting to be completed and I knew exactly how I was going to do it.

 I had two special pieces that were perfect for this creation.

Remember my little frozen men ...

... and my teeny, tiny tree?

They would both live together in their own little ...

... Winter Wonderland.

And that is what I would like to share with you today, my newest Christmas match box creation.
It is about the love for Christmas and snow and Christmas trees and snowmen.

I named it ...

... 'Everyone Loves Christmas'.

I crochet the he little snowflakes on the top of the box and then dipped them into a melted sugar and water mixture to make them really hard. Of course snowflakes glisten and that's why they were given a good sprinkle of glitter and that is also why they each have now a tiny Swarovski crystal living on them.

When you slip the box lid up ...

... you will see the inside of this creation.

It had snowed but that didn't stop my little frozen man from finding himself a teeny tiny Christmas tree which he decorated with tiny golden beads and a little Swarovski crystal star as the topper that he had picked from the frozen skies and now he is very happy and ready for Christmas.

My little friend, the penny, will give you an idea of the size of this creation.

Like I said, everyone loves Christmas and a Christmas tree, even the tiniest little snowman.

I hope you have enjoyed my latest Christmas creation ~ I just loved making it.

Thank you for stopping by and visiting me again here at Todolwen and I hope you will come back some time soon.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.
