I love participating in swaps. There seem to be so many to choose from in this land of blog but one of my favorites swaps to participate in has been the Petite Inspiration Box Swap hosted by the amazing Heather from A Speckled Egg. I love altering these tiny match boxes that you can purchase at your local grocery stores. They are perfect for tucking in the tiniest of treasures and gifts. This was my second time participating in Heather's swap. The two creative and generous ladies that I swapped with did a wonderful job, taking great care to create their sweet little inspiration boxes and filling them to the brim with artful treasures. Take a look at the wonderful little boxes they sent to me.
The sweet details... A pretty ruffled rose with twine wrapped around the German ledger paper that included a vintage pen tip.
I love the vintage paper that Heidi papered the inside of the box with.
The tiny inspiration box was filled to the brim with vintage treasures and tiny art bits.
The sweet details- a vintage doily wrapped around the papered box. I love the sweet fabric photograph that Tina attached to it.
Tina created a box with two tiny drawers- so very clever!
Each tiny drawer was so generously filled with sweet treasures.
This is the Petite Inspiration Box that I created for Heidi and Tina.
I tucked them in a black organza bag tied with ribbon and a tiny Jack-o-lantern ornament.
A Batty Witch with glittered wings.
Tucked inside my box were glittered stars, a rhinestone button, a tiny glass bird and a packet of halloween ephemera with ribbons and trims.
So very fun to make.
I think these little boxes would be so fun in a Halloween theme- filled with candy to give to sweet little trick-or-treaters that come a haunting on Halloween evening :-)
