Altered Match Box

After my Mum saw the first Match Box I altered she asked if I'd do a few for her to give to her sisters for Christmas - nothing like planning ahead!

The match boxes are from the supermarket - they're the long matches for open fires.

I've tried to distress the paper that I covered it with - I think I've done ok this time round - it doesn't look like my usual 'traumatised'!!!

This is going in for the Allsorts challenge which is hosted by the fab Helene this week - I almost missed out too - only an hour left to enter this week!

I'm also going to enter it for the Simon Says... Challenge which is 'distressing' this week (the theme that is - not the challenge!)

  4. Hi Carol. This is so pretty. Love your distressing and that lace is just stunning.


  5. Skogstokiga is a Swedish rubber stamp company. You can visit her blog to see all the stamps and you order by sending her a mail with what you want. Not the easiest way but they are so cute it's worth it =)
