From KCGal... a wicked handmade (?) pouch with the matchbox inside. AND it has my name stamped on it!
KittensOMG, so glad you liked your package!  It was fun to use FIMO on your box and the other 2 I made.  The "pillow box" is one of my favorite items, but I do purchase the pre-cut box and then I assemble and decorate it.  I want to make my own template so that I can use other paper stocks.

I received my package from Tree27 last night.  I also borrowed a friend's camera, so I have pictures of both boxes.  I apologize for the pictures--I had some trouble getting the thing to focus on lots of itty bitty stuff.

Package from Dragonslair:  

Plastic canvas, lots and lots of beads and some very cool charms (the metal charms have mottos; the moon charms are very pretty shimmery shell) Smiley  I don't think you can read it, but the box has a Richard Bach quote: "What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a BUTTERFLY."  

Package from Tree 27:
Loads of colorful stickers and doodads, and two squares of gorgeous vintagey fabric, which unfortunately didn't photograph well.  I think the mini-moose, bear and tree buttons are adorable.  Cheesy

What's really cool is that Dragonslair sent me moon charms and Tree sent me a bunch of stars... so I have a matched set, sort of.

Thank you both!  I'm going to have a blast playing with this... I already have several ideas!

She made the cutest knitted cozy for the box, in my favorite apple green color. I'm so amazed at all the goodies she packed into the box!! Sitckers, brads, charms, eyelets, sequins, beads and cute stamped images. I love it all! Thanks so much!!!!!

Wow, I love all the boxes I've seen today!  How fun to see two knitted "cozy" covers from loves2experiment and Hcaust!  and I love the blue birds box from Gwydion.

So impressed with all of the little goodies stuffed inside, too!
