The Gardener's Friends

I've caught the matchbox bug!

The theme for this pair is The Gardener's Friends, the bee & the ladybird.

Using Life's Journey Pansy paper by K & Company, I covered two blank matchboxes.

I added small pearls, ribbon, flowers made using a paper punch, metal charms & a touch of Glossy Accents.

This matchbox uses letters cut from the paper, to spell out the words.

I used dictionary definitions for this box, torn & inked with antique linen Distress Ink.

I used Hitch Fasteners by Tim Holtz as drawer pulls as they are the perfect size.

I feel a new addiction coming on ...


  1. Aaahh, these are so sweet, beautifully done with all the detail.

  2. Thanks Jo. I love working on a small scale & these are certainly small ... & fiddly ... & take a lot of patience ... but I love the results (am I allowed to say that?)

    Thanks for introducing me to them xx

  3. I should think you are allowed to say when you're happy with something! We're all very quick to point out the faults in our work so I think it's only fair that we are allowed to say, "Yes, that went well!" xx

  4. daisy they are gorgeous - not sure I could get so much detail onto something so small! Love them. S xx
