After we returnd from our drive yesterday I was thumbing through a new copy of Romatic Home magazine and came across this charming tricket box idea..Made with an empty matchbox.."Who wouldathounk it..?"
and If I can make one so can anyone.. see...how pretty..
You just cut pretty paper or fabric to cover the box, glue in place.. line the inside with a smaller piece and trim with ribbon, glass beads or buttons. I found some pretty paper & a small crystal & pearl bead for mine. Secured them with glue and there you have it.
I will put my tiny pieces of "sea glass or also known as "mermaids tears" inside. (I love finding pieces on the sea shore.) these I picked up on the sea shore on a trip to Washington Beaches last year.. to remind me of that trip...but You could put anything small inside couldn't you? Wonder what I can do with the fabric covered one?
