What's going to go inside my xmas matchboxes

Now I've finally made a start on my matchboxes for the swap at A swap for all seasons, thankfully I did my first one and decided to check the post giving all the requirement details and realized my matchboxes are too big so my first one went into my christmas decoration box so have to go and hunt down smaller ones tomorrow when I go grocery shopping...
Also that meant my little mini frames won't fit so had to think of something else and this is what I've made so far a couple of keyrings and a couple of magnets, I've also spotted a little cameo art mould on ebay and think if I can get it I could make some little brooches but I will have to buy it and see if it will fit into the matchboxes.....
These are what I made last night and my gosh they were so time consuming what with cutting them all out, painting, gluing and just putting them together it took ages especially as I broke my finger nail yesterday and it hurts like the dickens, yes going to get it fixed tomorrow they were all booked up today....

So this week I am on a mission to get at least ten of my matchboxes completed and do another 6 of the gifts for inside, I'm also going to start on my personal swap for Tabitha a paris inspired teacaddy box just have to get that thinking cap on and start planning on what to use on it.....

So this week I plan to
