Matchbox Treasure Boxes~


I'm so happy you stopped in!

Our weather is starting to coooool down.  I knew it would be coming~

I thought I would get a post or two ready ahead; before I get busy with some visiting family.
 I like the matchbox style! and it's so easy to find various size templates on the internet.
The larger one is made from Prima papers;  the smaller is a mix of papers.  The cute  image is from (click >)  Pion Designs  scrapbook paper from Sweden.




I added some beads and glitter, netting and a wide silk ribbon to the larger box.  It is about 4 or 5 inches long.   The "once upon a time" is a tag cut from a Sizzix die. 


On the small box - is lace, cheesecloth, narrow gold ribbon (I love this ribbon! wish I could find more,)  bits of linen, and 3 little flat-side beads for a crown.  The bird and text were cut from Pion papers.  This is near true-to-life matchbox size~  I added a teeny pull chain to the box bottom.  OMW! I thought I'd never get it secured! (but, I did ; )

Thank you Ever-So-Much for stopping in! 

Blessings to you!
Karen
