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

Just received from onecrazymom! The post office sure took its time... But I don't hold grudge, just look at this beautiful box!


So pretty!


A bit opened...


And here's everything spread loose from the box! I'm loving the little doll on the box so much that I just might have to copy that idea in some form! onecrazymom really got into what I like... Thank you again so much for the beautiful box! Cheesy

ok, my camera must have eaten the first images I had of the matchbox I received from prettyhatemachine.........grr..

so here is the great box she sent- I adore red poppies, and she made a beautiful one for the lid:


here's the box open:


contents in all their glory- my favorite color is red- love the theme!!!


favorite- sooooo tiny-how in the world did you do them?


another favorite!- fantastic little tag- from clothing, I think?


such a great assortment- thanks again  PHM, and sorry it took so long to post pix! Smiley
