Okay, now I am just getting nervous. I have mine about 75% done and the inside filled but after looking at this gallery so far I hope I am doing a good enough job. Eek! Everything looks amazing!

All these boxes are soooooo amazing! It's so much fun to see how many unique little treasures can fit inside such a small box.

I received from jmiller614 over the weekend! I apologize in advance for the abundance of pics...

I totally almost didn't grab my camera before opening the package! I ripped in and was like.... ACKKK! Gotta find my camera!



All the neat "sciency" stuff on the backside of the wrapping Wink Honestly, not a lot of made sense.. I'd have used it for packaging too Tongue Though, for a minute just holding it and reading it made me feel smarter Tongue LOL Sorry, I'm one of those into little details and I loved this paper.. I'm silly, I know!


She packed it inside of a school box Smiley


Upon opening... a nice note Smiley


And under all the ad fluff... a totally cool Legend inspired sword!!!


unboxed sword..


unfortunately, the glue somehow sealed it all closed together... I even pried a knife carefully between the seams of the cover into the box opening.. I think the Texas heat melded it all together. BUT!... I glue gunned it immediately! Smiley


And... voila! fixed and opened Smiley


Sword and all the goodies and bits and pieces inside... the little magnets' tops were melted a bit into each other somehow(Texas heat perhaps-it's 90 already here) and I carefully pulled them apart with a bit of peeling... but I love them. My son loves them too.. I haven't shown him the little capsules. They will be a surprise for him to see what they are. We haven't done those things before with him. I will have to find something to do with all of these little things Smiley But, truth be told... the sword is my fav part!

Thank you jmiller614 !!! I have to find a permanent home for my new sword Wink I will be sending yours out as soon as I finish it up! Not much more to go now Smiley

That sword is amazing- completely different from anything else I've seen! Samantha's box is gorgeous! I hope theaquacreature isn't disappointed when she receives my matchbox! You guys are setting incredibly high standards!

Grin So, I received my matchbox from Samantha_Mckay just a day ago! It is so beautiful and lovely. I like it so much. The goodies inside are so awesome! Here are the pictures!


So glad that you liked your box. I made the leaf charm, the snail and the ear cuff. The rest were fun little things I'd been collecting for awhile.




That sword is awesome!  I'm totally a slacker lmao.
Already the gallery is awesome.
