Easter Matchbox Fun


One of my favorite things to alter is matchboxes.

So I was excited to participate in the Panoramic Easter Swap hosted by JoAnne.
The idea was to create a matchbox reminiscent of a panoramic Easter egg.


This is the matchbox I created for JoAnne.

I cut a hole in the top of the matchbox, added this sweet little
frame I found at Michael's, and embellished it with little eggs and flowers.
I also added a little shimmer, using Stickles.





I received this amazing matchbox from Michele, and
it arrived in this beautiful altered box.


I love the cute bunnies on top, and
Seriously!......look at how gorgeous this matchbox is!!
It never occurred to me to cut out the end of the box.


I love the shape of the opening, and the details are so beautiful.


*swoon*


And how sweet is this little scene inside?!

Thank you Michele, I will treasure this beautiful box.
