Neither of us knew the other was creating a matchbox on a pedestal,
but we both did just that.

Easter Altered Matchbox Swap with Lynn - Part 2

Welcome back, thank you for stopping back by to see Lynn's Easter altered matchbox,
I know you will love it...


See how she attached the easel greeting card front

I did not tuck-in the easel card as I wanted you to see how it all fits.  This photo shows the sweet easel tab where you tuck-in the easel card to make it stand


Lynn also gifted me with her altered S&P shaker girl...so sweet!

Lynn knows how to spoil me...look at all the amazing goodies she enclosed in my matchbox drawer plus she also sent an extra envelope full of empherma pieces






Lynn created this thoughtful charm.  It now hangs at my desk where I see it every time I work on my computer...top charm reads Made With Love...indeed her whole matchbox and each enclosed goodie was from love...Thank you Lynn!

Easter Altered Matchbox Swap with Lynn - Part 1

Not only do we receive amazing creations through crafts swaps, but along the way we often make wonderful new friends.  Earlier this year I met Lynn L. via a swap.
Since then we have become wonderful long-distance friends.  

  Lynn and I recently exchanged Easter-themed altered matchboxes.
For Lynn,  I created a religious-themed Easter matchbox in her favorite color of purple.  I took two kitchen size matchboxes and adhered them together to create a cube design.  For the feet, I used two small wooden spools, painted in antique white chalk paint and covered the feet base with paper.  The cube design offered two drawers that I enjoyed filling with goodies for Lynn











Lynn cleverly created an ADORABLE easel greeting card style matchbox for me.  I am working on those photos, so please check back tomorrow to see Lynn's matchbox - you won't want to miss it!
