This is the first time I have ever done this so I am really happy and proud of my outcome. Compared to the others I know it won't win, but I have tried Smiley
It is set around all the stuff that I used on a scrapbook for my ex boyfriend (I thought I best use some of it up.) We broke up last year the day before Valentines Day, which his come back was, well I was going to propose to you tomorrow. So this I suppose is my interpretation of how that day may have turned out if things had turned out that way Smiley
I am sorry for the bad camera quality but hey Smiley my camera is having a mad one recently Smiley

So the matchbox started out like this Smiley

It then miraculously turned into this, the box has been covered with a cream paper with gold dots on it, which has has a 3D heart sticker placed on top of it. The box is opened via the beaded puller on the front. Containing 4 gold beads and one blue heart.

Inside of this box was a piece of paper rolled up all nicely, surrounded by 4 hearts (the 5 hearts represent the 5 times me and the ex broke up and got back together)

The piece of paper folded out says 'To my dearest, I love you and never want to lose you. On this valentine's I swear to always love you. Will you marry me? Love XO' Written on a really nice handmade paper with rose petals in.

Underneath the four heart is a piece of red card which has a tab on it, to which it lead to a beautiful bunch of flowers made of tissue paper and a heart pendant on a necklace (made out of a pipe cleaner)

The flowers look awesome in real life but my camera does them no justice what so ever, the flowers themselves are pink and blue. The pink is to match the pink heart sticker on the front of the box and the blue is to match the hearts inside and out the box.

Then finally this is all of it together Smiley


I really enjoyed doing this challenge. I did it all in about 2 hours. I am ill at the moment so it has helped me take my mind off of things Smiley
C&C are appreciated Smiley

It's okay, without that story I wouldn't have had the inspiration to do this box and actually give it any meaning Smiley
