Oh wow, that's so cute and inventive! Your little accordion book is fantastic, did you hand sew the bindings or did you use a sewing machine?

This is totally totally sweet! I have quite the soft spot for matchboxes and also for owls. What you crammed in this little drawer is.... just.... magic. It's full of awesomeness! The booklet made me laugh and I particularly enjoyed the fact that the back was little pockets with owl cut-outs tucked in. Most excellent use for an empty little slider box! IMHO, someone needs to throw this up in featured! (YAY!)
