I received both of my matchboxes from StarFire and gozer this week and HOLY CANNOLI!! These girls hit the nail on the head as far as my taste is concerned. I'm feeling pretty spoiled.
I haven't taken pictures of gozer's box yet, but I'll share StarFire's now and finish up with gozer's tomorrow. Prepare to be jealous, folks.
StarFire's matchbox was wrapped in a box with a cute tag and a large amount of this pretty ribbon. This isn't the best picture of it, but it works.
Inside was my matchbox and a tube of sparkly flower-shaped glitter. I forgot to take a picture of the glitter.
The matchbox is seriously adorable, though. I'm in love with these little owls! See for yourself...
Here's a picture of everything stuffed inside!
And finally, here's all of my goodies laid out. (Notice the matchbox's cute interior!)
There's a cute little sock monkey brad (How did you know I love sock monkeys?),
a snake brad (or maybe he's a bookworm, hence the glasses. Either way, he's cute.),
a turtle charm,
a deer charm,
a toadstool bead,
a sparkly green heart bead,
a nest charm,
two wishbone charms,
a magnet with a picture of a birdy and a few mushrooms on it (already on my fridge),
adorable owl earrings (already in my ears),
four pretty blue beads,
two sparkly paper owls,
three sparkly paper trees (this paper is gorgeous! Like Edward Cullen in the sunlight!
and ten pieces of miniature paper artwork, all lovely!
Here are some close-ups for good measure.
I am floored with how fantastic my boxes are. I hope mine measure up!
Thanks for a wonderful swap, StarFire! I can't wait for you and gozer to get your boxes!
