JoAnne from Vintage Dragonfly hosted a recent Valentine's Day Altered Matchbox Swap. I was thrilled to be a part of it! It was a rotation swap.
This is the altered matchbox I created for Amy D.
Layers of lace, trim and millinery, mostly vintage.
I used pages from a vintage French book and stamped forever, adore & love
on them to cover the inside box
added a beaded pull on one end
and filled it with treasures
I ran out of room inside the matchbox, so I included one of my decorated peat pots
to hold this BE MINE stamp
and some DOVE chocolates, because you've got to have chocolate for Valentine's Day
Happy Valentine's Day to Amy D. and to you!
My rotation swap partner Lynn has her matchbox in the mail to me... I am so excited to receive it!
Maybe tomorrow, but with our 'arctic vortex snow-tsunami' we are having, it may be late.
I will post Valentine's Day Altered Matchbox Swap - Part 2
and share Lynn's matchbox once I receive it.
Thank you JoAnne for hosting this wonderful swap!
