Altered Matchbox by Amy

Welcome back to the SRM Stickers Blog! We have a sweet miniature item for you today, an altered matchbox by Amy Duff. Amy Duff created this wonderful keepsake box that would fit any occasion -- anniversary, birthday, or just to say "I Love You".

Amy covered the matchbox with patterned paper and distressed it with sandpaper. She punched a label bracket from striped patterned paper and added a sentiment plus two heart die cuts sewn together. Amy also added a strip of rhinestones for extra bling! The ribbon is tied around the top of the box and a button with floss was attached to the center.

For the inside, Amy painted it cream and then distressed it to match the casing. She added the border stickers on both the left and right side of the box as shown. Amy then placed the perfectly sized "XO" sticker.

The handle was created with a stick pin and earring back.

Be sure to check back tomorrow to see Shannon's fabulous February Journal pages!
