Title: Magical, Harry Potter, Alchemy Matchbox!
Post by: mingus107 on June 16, 2011 10:48:42 AM
I made this matchbox for the very patient, Tapestrymlp. She got flaked on in the "matchbox Round 5 Swap" (booooo!), so I stepped in the angel for her. The matchbox swap was my first ever swap- and first time making a matchbox. I had such a great swap experience (check out the octopus matchbox that I received from Theaquacreature) and I urge anyone who hasn't swapped yet to give it a try!

After reading up on my partners interests, this is what I came up with. A magic/Harry Potter/alchemy book.


A leather bound matchbox

Holding secret treasures!


A book of spells and a candle to read it by

A crystal ball, scroll with secret message and amulet with protective powers!

I wanted to add a miniature potion bottle- until I saw the bottles that Tapestry makes! They are so incredible, I refused to embarass myself! I hope Tapestry likes her box and thanks for looking!

This is gorgeous!  The tiny charms are so sweet, and so detailed!  I bet Tapestry loves it.
