I just looked back at some of the previous posts and saw a had a teaser from melmakespretty - exciting! I am also a little worried that I have sent the wrong size matchbox looking at these photos - so I hope I will be forgiven:(

I have received 2 out of 3 so far... But I couldn't wait any longer to post so I'll post the 3rd when it arrives! The names of the senders are on the pics. Woohoo! Such great jobs! I love them both!

From AmaryllisRoze, I just ADORE the belly dancer on the front. It was so nice of her to include one of my hobbies and it looks great! And the green man is AWESOME!!!! She really nailed me on this one!!!


From PinUpMommy, I don't think I put anywhere that I like stars but i LOVE stars!!! She did a great job and I like my bear shrinky dinky! she's so cute!!!! (and my mother is OBSESSED with snowflakes, so that's funny) Thank you so much!

Oh, I love the green man and the fleur-de-li and the spiral beads and the shrinky-dink bear is quite adorable!

I have a frighteningly large stash of teeny stuff that will fit in a matchbox.

I did some stalking on Phoenix and remembered I had that belly dancer/peacock picture. Its really small, so I haven't been able to find the right use for it until now!

Sorry it has taken me so long to get pictures up! I got pinupmommy's creations and goodies on Saturday (kind of). Thank you so much pinupmommy! She even spoiled me with a few goodies Tongue
Here's what I found in my mailbox:


The lovely box with the extra leaves she sent me because she new I was in the tree swap. I'll have to see if I can't put them to some good use.


The innards. I love those tiny little leaves and the snowflakes. I'm probably going to end up keeping the mini leaves for myself and making them into little studs to match a pair on dangly oak leaf earrings I have. Thank you!


Everything together.

Nice matchboxes ladies! I love all of the ones that have been posted so far!

So Mamarose22 received the matchbox I sent her, and she said that I could go ahead and post pics if I have any, so here they are the pictures I did take Cheesy

They aren't that detailed though Sad



You can kind of see the decorations on the box. I didn't think to take a closeup picture of the box lol



A closeup of the leaf-shaped beads and charms I put in the box.

I am really glad you liked everything Mamarose22!!

So many pretty boxes! I didn't even think of doing shrinky dinks, it would have been easier that searching for Zombies and skeletons (for monkey_girl)

Oh, I really like that tree!  Nicely done.  Smiley

PhoenixLlewelyn: I haven't actually tried it, but you're supposed to be able to square up twisted shrink plastic after it comes out of the oven.  You have to work pretty fast, though, since you've only got about 10 seconds before it hardens and you have to put it back in the oven to soften up and try again.  (and the slanting happens if they pulled the sheets sideways when they were manufacturing them-- I've had some sheets that slanted and some that didn't come out of the same package)
