Merry Kitschmas!

Terri and I had a little fun swapping vintage ephemera for Christmas!  It's not too early to get your a little dose of Kitchmas.  Can I just say that it was so much fun digging into my vintage Christmas supplies?
This was my favorite part: I used an old Christmas ornament box and filled each section with a silver cupcake liner, then some tiny vintage treasures.



I wrapped the ornament box in a vintage bag from our local theme park, The North Pole.
 These are vintage decorated match boxes
 Stickers -- I love this era!
 Some textiles, ribbon, and trim.
 This red, white and green crepe paper looks great stitched into a ruffle, so I gave her lots in case she wants to try that
 More seals and stickers
 Dresden foil and vintage Christmas napkins
 I'm not the expert packager that Terri is, but I did try to put things together prettily!
 Buttons, of course. 
 Paper ephemera, too!
 The good stuff




While I was at it, I sent some fabric scraps and, since I had it out already...
I decided to put together a Christmas-themed snippet roll!
I know, I know...another snippet roll..
You can just skip this part if you're tired of looking at them!
 It's brighter than the average snippet roll, which is usually more low color/neutrally themed



 How cute is that tiny deer scatter pin?






In the mix: a Happy New Year paper hat, a Putz house, one of my paper roses -- and I threw in a little black, spider-webby bag with a few little Halloween goodies in it while I was at it.
Swapping is so much fun.  Swapping with a good friend is even better!
I can't wait to show you what I received in return!

Oh, I bet she was thrilled!! I adore the idea of the foil cupcake liners in the vintage ornament box. I bet it looked just like a box of candy!
