Boîte D' Allumettes Swap

We had a beautiful matchbox swap
in the Marie Antoinette mail art group.

My partner was the talented Terri Heinz.



It took me awhile to open, and wander through
the beauties she sent me. Everything was
wrapped and presented so beautifully.


I love this little jointed Marie paper doll. The
colors and details are so dainty and pretty.


The matchbox is a true treat for the eyes!
The colors are perfect and I love the papers
and lovely embellishments she used.




There was even a mini matchbox inside.

And all the sweet goodies....oh my!




Terri, I am thrilled beyond words to have
this beautiful creation from you.

Thank you, thank you!


This is the matchbox I created for Terri.
I used vintage papers, laces and flowers.
Then added some bling!



Hope you are enjoying a beautiful (dry) spring week!

Both the box from Terri and the box you gave are just delicious. Every detail is included and then some. I am always amazed at how much one can fit into such a small package. Fabulous!!!

I am so thrilled you like the box I made for you! Whew! I was so nervous!
Thank you for explaining what the wooden piece was. I did not recognize it until you told me. At first I thought it was an old toilet paper roll holder!!! LOL!!!
I still thought it was cool....and could be very useful, but I love that it is what it is! In fact, I would love to use it now the way it was intended. Now I just need something to wrap in brown paper and tie it up with string : )
Your box to me is so totally gorgeous! I am still gazing at it and loving it.
Thank you so much!
Hugs,
Terri
