Spring Matchbox

Hello lovelies,

On this beautiful sunny day I thought I'd share a recent project that was a load of fun to put together. It was for a filled matchbox swap in a Spring theme.

The idea of a matchbox swap is to decorate a normal size matchbox in the given theme as well as filling it up with a number of goodies. I love Spring, so it wasn't too hard to let my imagination soar with this one.

 I chose watercolours and white to be the main colour palette for the matchbox. I used a watercolour butterfly and flower as the main images and added sparklies in the form of glitter pens and craft gems. the butterfly on the button was stamped with Stayz-on ink and it's a great way of embellishing your projects if you need that little something different.  Some pink twine tied together the whole look quite nicely (haha).

The content of the box was a mixture of various Spring themed items that included tiny diecuts, small notepad sheets, charms, brads, beads, stickers and a tiny little plate from a children's tea set.

Happiness and sunshine to you
