Altered Matchboxes....

Hey Girls....

I've been on a bit of a crafting streak lately and have been busy working away in my craft room.

Last weekend, I made two new altered match boxes.  One of which I will keep for myself and one that I made for a family member who will receive her Christmas gift of cash wrapped up in a special and pretty way.

The match box I will be keeping for myself has my favorite colors of blue and pink...


  
 
 

And this is the one that will be used to hold a gift of money at Christmas time...


 



This weekend, I was busy altering some more wooden spools and I will share those soon in another post.

Until then... Take care.!!

Kim, hello...I found your blog through Pinterest, and I'm so glad I did. First, I love your match box - it's lovely. I've been in the process of hand decorating gift boxes, so I can really appreciate this.

But I wanted to comment on your re-purposing the jewelry holder to feature your delightful potholder collection. It looks wonderful! Also I love what you did with the wooden spools...the colors are so pretty and very cheery.

Blessings for a happy day,
Marianne

I had found your blog about 3 years ago, then lost the link and did not find you again until today. I was sad that the most recent entry was in November 2013, almost a year ago. I hope you are ok and doing well. I love pouring over your blog and all the beautiful paper items you make! Do you have another blog you are now doing? If so, please let me know because I would love to follow it! Thanks, Sandy
