Decorating Mini Angels With A Four Year Old

I spent several happy hours this morning decorating mini birch ply angels with my four year old daughter. Whatever I did, she wanted to copy. The gold paper was from eating our way through some Ferrero Rocher! We also made some paper chains.

Mini matchboxes for Christmas with jelly beans

Every year I get involved with a school Christmas Fair and make Christmas matchboxes to sell to the children. Although these are time consuming, I love doing it and look forward to putting all the bits together. I simply cover matchboxes with pretty wrapping paper using glue - wrap the paper right round and then trim when dry. I also cut small rectangles out to glue on the bottom of the mini drawers before deciding what will fit in. Last year was mini chocolates so this year it's jelly beans! I've decorated an old wooden box with vintage wallpaper to display them in. They sell for £1 each. Larger match boxes are fun to decorate
too as you can add lots of goodies inside.
