Altered


The final challenge of 2010 over at Art N Soul was to alter a matchbox and include 'something' inside as a surprise for your swap partners. Looking at the photostream everyone has shown what's inside their boxes so no surprise there then!!! LOL

Here's my matchbox. I used Crafty Individual angel themed papers and embossed the edges of the box in silver. A dab of Stickles on the stars on the front of the box and some glossy accents to highlight the two angels. I lined the inside of the box with the same themed papers and put some grey organza fabric inside. The silver bell is from my stash.

Inside the box is a tiny Christmas Card made with the same papers and I again embossed the edges, also added a row of clear beads.

Some time ago, I made several necklaces from glass tiles so I popped one inside a silver coloured tin, (which the recipient can alter for another project if they want to). The silver star snowflake was from my stash.
