Is that felt stitched onto the box? I am crazy about felt, wonky houses and appliqu so I think that box rocks! It's a box of rocks actually Cheesy.

I received from TCMatteson this weekend.  She had some personal issues that necessitated a late mailing unfortunately but I think my beautiful box was worth the wait!

I gave her the rather broad theme of nature and she made me a box topped with a gorgeous wire and bead Tree of Life!
With all the goodies
  lovely inchies, flower beads, tiny buttons, a little bottle of dried wildflowers, a sweet butterfly clasp
And Earrings!!
The jellyfish are straight off my wists.  I think they're my favorite!!
I also got a simply yummy smelling soap as an extra!
Thank you, TC!!!!  I love the box and I'm wearing the jellyfish earring as I type!

Amaryllisroze received from me a while ago but hasn't been able to post pics so she told me to go ahead and put up a couple.
In my stalking I noticed a few themes so I went with 2 of them- Day of the Dead and Birds.
This lead to my first attempt at papel picado:

A couple shrinky dinks:


This one has no hole in it because it is too small but I figured she could glue it to something:P
And finally the matchbox itself all filled up:

It was a lot of fun coming up with ideas:)

Great matchboxes everyone! The tree of life and birdhouse boxes are fantastic! Grin

I sent this box along to the lastkodama a few weeks ago -- she has been busy, so I thought I'd post a pic! I didn't get a shot of the contents (of course) but here's the outside -- I had a lot of fun making it!


The box is covered with paper clay and moss -- the mushrooms and snail are also paperclay.  The acorn cap is an acorn cap. Grin
