Here are a few fun things I made for the Tudor and matchbox swaps.


Shadowbox with Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn! This was the first item I got an idea for when I joined the swap, and it turned out pretty close to what I pictured. I was reading a book about these two at the time I made this, and Anne's character was depicted as someone who followed Henry around, always knew what he was doing, the "nagging wife" type so I thought putting him in the background with her face all over the place would be funny.


I guess it's also symbolic of the loss of her head!! The box is actually wooden book box I found at the thrift store--the front cover opens to expose the nice open space inside.


This is a set of notecards with Elizabeth I's picture and signature.


Harry Potter-themed matchbox: "The Diminutive Book fo Diminutivity" Cheesy


Steampunk-themed box. I like the words on top, and the spinners really spin.

Thanks for looking!

The matchboxes are sweet and I love the stationery.
