Matchbox


An altered matchbox with tiny gifts inside is the theme for our Art n Soul group over on Flickr. I knew I had a matchbox but rather than tip everywhere upside down I took the 'easy' way out and made one, I glimmer misted it stuck on a vintage Santa image, which I mod podged to give it some life then added a jeweled snowflake, but what to put inside?? I had the game piece decorated with the pansy so I added a magnet to the back then out came the crochet hooks and vintage pansy pattern and the cotton pansy was born I added a tag to fill the box and it was finished.
