Altered Match box 2

Hi Bloggers. 

This is the second matchbox I made.  It is so small next to the first matchbox I did, I struggled to decide which stamps to use to decorate it all my Tilda stamps are far to big so there was no way I could use them. I have an A5 plastic storage box which I use to keep a selection of ready stamped images which just need to be coloured.  So I had a look through and opted for this butterly.

Items Used:-
Dawn Bibby butterly stamp (from QVC)
Scrap of lace
Recycled bow (from a shop bought christmas card I received)
Gems stones
Coloured with Promarkers (as was the Tilda matchbox)

Being so small I could only add the one image, not being satisfied with this I added a little extra inside...

Stamp used inside the matchbox is by Nellie Snellen.

Both of these matchboxes make super gift boxes for small jewellery items you have bought or made. They can be used to keep the gift in or as a decorative item afterwards.

As you no doubt can tell I never did get around to sending this into Craft Stamper so I thought I would share it here with you.

Thanks for looking see you next time.
