altered matchbox turned gift box.

5:44:00 PM

February's altered challenge has gone up over at scrapbook challenges. this month we were given a love song as inspiration to work with. fast forward and i am totally useless with things like that. so i told Brynn what i wanted to do and she gave me the totally awesome song "Push by Matchbox 20"....genius i tell you. so i love altering things i have around the home...and these little boxes are perfect for gift boxes - you can add a small concertina love letter inside it, some candy, a small gift like a bracelet charm or anything else you can think off. it will definitely make your kids feel so special receiving a little something to celebrate love on Feb 14th.
i used a bunch of left over papers and embellishments from another project to make this little album inside one of the boxes.
the drawers are decorated using decorative tapes and glitter.
and some really dainty beautiful little flowers punched using my OLBA punch. have you checked those punches yet...amazing i tell you! and may i add - i am so not a fiddly kinda crafter using loads of these flowers. but i have to confess i have secretly (shhh) become really fond of them!
and don't forget the diamonds....
more flowers spilling over the sides to add some texture and colour to an otherwise forgotten edge
rub-ons are transferred onto white card stock and trimmed around the edges, then inked to hide the cutting marks and adhered to the boxes

hope you like these little boxes. they truly are lots of fun and quick to make! so gather some matchboxes and go and play along with us over at scrapbook challenges! chat soon....
i am covered in red, cream and pink for valentines....and need to still finish a tone of stuff for next weekend!
