Filled Matchbox Swap

Suzie from the docrafts forum organised a "filled matchbox swap" which I had great fun taking part in! Of course I had to alter my matchbox lol! My partner turned out to be Suzie and as she has now received the box I thought I would show it on here. Yes it is a vintage style box lol!Made using distress ink, glimmer mist, lace and a hand made flower! Filled with more handmade flowers, lace, charms, paper clips, mini postcards, and lots of other tiny goodies (see picture).Great fun to do thank you Suzie for organising!

  7. I love this Alyson!! I used to do a lot of these swaps on and they were so much fun!! You know I was wondering where you had gone as I hadn't had a blog update from you in ages, I only just realized it was because I wasn't following you anymore!! How did that happen, I have no idea!! Anyway, I'm off to catch up with the rest of your posts.
