I know Valentine's Day was a while ago, but I finally got around to taking pictures of what I made my fiancee for V-T Day. I was inspired by all the little matchbox shrines people make here out on Craftster, but thought there was no way I could be that detailed - so I started with a much BIGGER matchbox - a box of 250 strike on box matches! That was more my size.
The wax impression bees on the front are for us - both our names begin with B.
When you open the drawer, a small book of kisses is inside.
The kisses book is a flip book of me blowing kisses that I made by following this tutorial on Color Me Kate's blog:http://colormekatie.blogspot.com/2010/02/kiss-in-your-pocket.html
A false bottom in the box is removed to reveal - more matchboxes! These are normal sized, and were made from cardstock.
Contents of the Dreams matchbox - a small bottle of wishes (glitter), the 2 rings on the Future tag are because we're getting married in March, and a small I Love You capsule.
When the capsule is unscrewed, a small piece of paper is found rolled up inside - on it I'd written him a little poem:
The second matchbox:
Inside were lots of little trinket hearts I had collected, along with one that was embossed with the message, You Are In My Heart:
When those were removed, a small book was revealed:
Which was an accordian book of photographs we had taken after our engagement:
My fiancee LOVED it (he's super supportive and excited about all my craftiness).
Thanks for looking! Comments/suggestions/questions welcome!
