Dressing Up

A quick simple project for this week.

Taking some sturdy double sided paper, from Crate Paper's Twirl Collection, I made a small matchbox. The Dress Up paper has a beautiful pink floral design on one side with a co-ordinating plain brown on the reverse.

The only additions to the paper & elements cut out from it, are the pale pink pearls by Mark Richards.

I used the Tim Holtz Vintage Market die to cut out the letter J for the front, as I am hoping to pass this little treasure box on to someone whose name begins with a J! I'm hoping she will like the shabby, yet feminine feel to this box.

A view of the back of the matchbox & the bottom of the drawer shows that from every angle the box should look as good as the front.


  1. Ooh ooh ooh, my name's Joanna.......?! OK, it's not for me, but it's still lovely. I love the TH die cut, he is the King isn't he? Another lovely matchbox, Daisy. You are the Queen! x

  2. I love all the matchboxes you've made Daisy, esp the animal one awhile back, and I love the summer canvas, it's fab :)
