LESSology Challenge #2 - The Trinket Box

Hi! Here is my first project for the LESSology challenge blog. The challenge is to make a trinket box and upcycle something. FUN!

I used a few match boxes (I have a ton of empty match boxes and that is now before the dark season has begun for real!) to make a box card with four drawers.

2a

I glued them down on a piece of cardboard and covered the sides with patterned paper. Then I made a “card” the size of the box and then simply adhered it on top when done. Easy peasy.

I’ve used the FAB new papers Chantilly Dawn from Riddersholm Design for this project. The bird is fuzzy cut from one of the papers. LOVE this line! :)

2c

I plan to write a little message to the recipient on the inside. Decorated with patterned paper and a fabbie Cheery Lynn swirl.

2e

I hope you will play with us over at LESSology! The challenge is open until October 2. All info HERE!

Did you like the papers I used? They could be yours! Riddersholm Design is having a yummy blog candy right now! Open for all! All info HERE!

Superläckert! Gjorde några sådana tändsticksaskar ett år och gav bort som "julkort" vilket var uppskattat. Kanske ska de närmaste få sådana här i år? Tack för tipset.
kram ANnika

My gosh, Tesa, this is gorgeous! Absolutely stunning! And such a clever creation with the matchboxes. :) This would be such a fabulous gift holder and greeting card all in one. LOVE it! Now I just need to get my hand on some matchboxes.
