It is for a swap on Gina's wonderful ning site: myscraproom. And this swap was hosted by Lydia, whose yt channel is itripledogdareu. So I just had to join! Now in this swap we were suppose to decorate a large matchbox and make a little mini to go inside. Sounds simple, right? Well I pulled out the only matchbox we had in the house...and it was so old it was falling apart. So off I go to Walgreens to buy a new one...sounds easy, right? But when I got home with three new colors of nail polish and a bottle of wine, I knew I had to go back out for a matchbox. So the next day, off to Walmart...and several ice cream desserts and another bottle of wine later, I got home with no matchbox...
The mini inside is only 2" wide and 4" tall. Not too many embellishments could go in or on it, because it had to fit in the matchbox, but the papers are so pretty, it didn't take much! I just love how it turned out.
Just a bit of lace here and there..some petite flowers and delicate metal filigrees and it came out just perfect. I sure hope Olga, my swap partner likes it!
