Matchbox Box

This box was a hoot to make. It was so easy with the Matchbox Die and the bigshot. I used kraft cardstock as the base, then dazzled it up with a wrap of Night of Navy and DSP in the same colour. I wanted to emphasize how the matchbox works well at holding nicknacks for the ladies at the class, so I decided to do a "tea theme".

I wanted to add depth to the image from the Tea-riffic stamp set; this look on the cup and saucer was achieved very easily- by using an aqua marker and some ink. It game it that watercolour look that is so classic and suited the tea theme.

  1. What a cute idea! Never would have thought to fill it with tea. Very nicely decorated.
