I wanted to try and make one of these little treasure boxes for such a long time, and this afternoon I took the plunge, emptied out the biggest matchbox I could find and set about decorating it. Now why is it that these things always develop a life of their own? I spent a lovely half hour or so looking for supplies and then ended up discarding half of them and picking up totally different stuff.
I wanted to make it look a bit like a bonbon, a big sweet, so I needed frilly lace for the ends. That kinda set the tone for the rest of the embellishments. I'll just show you all the pics instead of rabbiting on -
I haven't filled it yet, that will take another few hours, lol.
