Hi, Sisters! I'm going to host a monthly stocking stuffer swap again this year. You can save them up each month until next Christmas, or open them as you receive them, your choice.

For January, you will be making your partner an altered matchbox (small size) based on their musical taste. DON'T stuff it with itty bitty crap! That is not necessary for this swap. If you want to put something inside, one item is enough. Or you can make a sort of diorama style matchbox and decorate the heck out of the whole thing. The type of altered matchbox is up to you.

After signing up for the swap, post below so your partner will know your musical taste; a favorite song, performer or musical style. Then when the partners are assigned, check below to see what kind of music your partner likes.

Wrap it stocking stuffer style (tissue paper is fine, and a tag with swap info and your name). Enjoy!

I’ve never done an altered matchbox. I’ll have to decide if I’m ready to jump in. I’m thinking about it!

@hollycm6 altered matchboxes are really fun to make! And they can be as simple or as time consuming as you want to make them. Since this is a Stocking Stuffer, we are aiming for fairly simple. I'll give you one little hint since you've never made one before...scrapbooking paper is your friend. Just wrap scrapbooking paper around the matchbox and glue it down with a glue stick. Very simple and then you just need to embellish it and do a little something with the drawer. Check out some google or pinterest images for ideas.

I love just about all music, but I'm into the blues right now.

Ok I'll give it a shot. And my apologies to the partner receiving from me. I'm choosing Jason Mraz's "Lucky". But honestly, if this doesn't inspire you, I'm happy to send you a list of other possibilities. :) (I also love Kenny Loggins "House at Pooh Corner"... that'd be pretty easy!)
