I know there has been a lot of them posted on here but I just love them! This was my first attempt at it and it was so easy. I made it out of matchboxes and some thin cardboard.

I ended up filling it with some buttons, little plastic glittery animal shapes, rubber ducky pushpins, chocolates, and other knick knacks and gave it to my sister.

I am in love with the scrapbooking paper I used as well. It was one of those things where I was finally ok with using a piece of it ( I only have 2 sheets of it) because I knew it would look good on this project.
