Matchbox ATCs


Something a little bit different from me again today.  This is a set of matchbox ATCs which I made recently for a swap on one of the Yahoo groups I belong to.  It's a standard small matchbox and the idea is to decorate the box and then make miniature ATCs to put inside.

My theme was vintage and I used stamps, old book pages, some 7 Gypsies transfers, stickers and HOTP label words.  I decorated the box with part of a book page and then added a die cut butterfly (the small Memory Box butterfly die) and some pearls.

I'd like to enter my project in the following challenges:

Love to Create Challenge Blog - 'pick two things' (pearls and distressing)
Come and Get It Challenges - 'anything but a card'
Heck of a Challenge - 'spring/butterflies and pearls'
Sarah Hurley Challenges - 'recycle' (matchbox and book pages)
Cute Card Thursday - 'something old'
Hotshot Craft - 'anything but a card'
Papertake Weekly - 'anything goes'
ABC Challenges - 'anything goes'
