SPOILER ALERT: If you are one of the participants in the 12 Days of Christmas matchbox swap, you might not want to read further!
I know it's a little early for Christmas things, but I recently shipped Penny from The Linen Shelf my contributions to her 12 Days of Christmas matchbox swap. I was responsible for "11 Pipers Piping". As you can see, I chose to use an image of a bagpiper, rather than a regular piper, whatever that may be.. a flute player? I don't know.
Inside each box is a little kit to make a mini garland.
And here is what the garland looks like assembled. There were a few flaws in my plan - the eyelets are so tiny it's hard to thread the ribbon through, and the garland hangs a little more stiffly than I'd like. But, overall, I think the project turned out really well. Now that I've worked out all the kinks, I have a similar project in the works that you'll be seeing here very soon. I can't wait until it's ready to show you!
