I just completed my first matchbox dotee and wanted to share.  Even though she was a little bit of a challenge, I really like her, and I am happy with the theme I chose.  I used an image of a vintage book cover for the box itself, and a picture of a forest for the inside.

Here she is...  (hopefully I am doing this correctly)

I'm not hip so I had to google dotee.  Embarrassed  Very nice! How big is it? It looks tiny.

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

It is tiny.  It is made using the smallest matchbox I could find.  They came in a pack of 8 from the local dollar store.

The tininess just makes it more precious.
