Spring Altered Matchbox Swap!


I recently participated in Laura Gunn's (Decor to Adore)
Spring Matchbox Swap.
I created this matchbox for my partner Mary,
who I knew had a penchant for French/Marie style:

I used black and white toile paper to cover the matchbox,
and tore a strip of fabric with French words and wrapped it around the box.
I trimmed both edges with silver german scrap.
I then scrunched up a vintage doily and attached to the box,
topping it with some tulle, velvet leaves
and roses I had made from vintage music paper and glimmer misted.
Then I painted a butterfly with
Tim Holtz's crackle glaze and attached it atop a rose.

Here's another look and a peek at the contents:
